Poshard defends dissertation against plagiarism charges

Jordan Wilson and Joe Crawford 30 August 2007 No Comment

SIU President Glenn Poshard defended his doctoral dissertation Wednesday against accusations he had lifted portions of the 1984 document from other works without properly attributing them.

Poshard did say, however, he may have inadvertently left out some citations.

“I could have made a mistake,” Poshard said. “I’m not saying I didn’t.”

The Daily Egyptian recently obtained copies of Poshard’s dissertation and original works from a source close to Alumni and Faculty Against Corruption at SIU. The source, who insisted on anonymity, said Poshard used verbatim excerpts in his dissertation that were not cited or quoted.
