Hello lads! We’re back again for housing coverage on this lovely Tuesday. Today’s top stories: EC is on it’s way out, Barnard started their housing today with 4-person–can we get an F in the chats
BSchool professor Adam Dell is Padma’s babydaddy. At long last: beekeeping is legal in New York. GS student Sam Elchert is relieved. More on GS and the G.I Bill: GS student John McClelland talks to the BBC about his time as an Army medic. Generally Big Deal Person and History Professor David Eisenbach is writing […]
More on the Teachers College hate mail that was sent on Monday to several TC professors: the New York Post reported last night that four letters were sent, including one with a picture of a noose and addressed to former professor Madonna Constantine. Three other letters included pictures of swastikas, and were addressed to Jewish […]
This afternoon, Teachers College students received an email from the offices of President Susan Furman and Provost Tom James announcing that “earlier today, several faculty members received envelopes containing hate mail.” “We have alerted the Hate Crimes Unit of the New York City Police Department,” the email continues, “which is still investigating the October 2007 […]
Conn Corrigan, a J-School grad writing for the New York Sun, is reporting that Madonna Constantine, she of noose-hanging incident and now-confirmed plagiarism fame, is being suspended indefinitely from Teachers College after an investigation concluded that despite her claims to the contrary, she did, in fact, plagiarize the works of two former doctoral candidates and […]
Relatively unreliable paper The New York Post is reporting that a grand jury has subpoenaed all Columbia’s records on Madonna Constantine, citing financial records and personnel records of particular importance. The investigation into last year’s noose-hanging incident has yet to pinpoint any possible suspects, while the plagiarism investigation remains tightly under wraps, with both Constantine’s […]
Making the rounds on the TC listserv today, an email from Professor Madonna Constantine. In the email, Constantine maintains her innocence and calls the actions of the administration “premature, vindictive, and mean-spirited.” She also indicates that she believes her race played a role in the investigation: “I am left to wonder whether a White faculty […]
As the Spectator reported earlier, Teachers’ College professor and hate crime victim Madonna Constantine is currently being investigated for fraud and plagiarism. However, it’s not publicly known which of her works are coming under scrutiny. Bwog attempted to contact Joe Levine, the Executive Director of External Affairs at TC for possible information regarding the case. […]
“Professor Madonna Constantine has been sanctioned by Teachers College for plagiarism, according to a memo obtained by Spectator Tuesday evening. The memo, dated Feb. 18, was hand-delivered to professors on the Office of the President’s stationery.” Columbia professors won’t be visiting Ahmadinejad any time soon; they settle for next best petty, cruel dictator Why Shakespeare’s […]
Columbia events, in the national spotlight. Kind of. The New York Times ran an article about President Bush, who in a conference yesterday about race relations denounced incidents involving nooses and said: “The noose is not a symbol of prairie justice, but of gross injustice. Displaying one is not a harmless prank.” The Times mentioned […]
There’s no fall break when it comes to press conferences. Somehow, Justin Vlasits woke up for it. It was a chilly morning on the steps of the Arthur Zankel Building of Teacher’s College as reporters from every major television and radio station crowded onto the sidewalk to hear TC Jewish Association Co-President Rebecca Pasternak and […]
The New York Sun is reporting that a swastika was found painted on the door of Elizabeth Midlarsky, a Jewish Teachers College professor who studies the Holocaust. TC President Susan Fuhrman responded to the incident in an email send out to the TC community this morning: “We feel we’ve been targeted precisely because Teachers College […]
From The Guardian, Columbia University will not turn over surveillance video that could potentially aid the police with the case. Currently, the police have no suspects, though they are looking into a Teacher’s College professor who holds “ill will” against Madonna Constantine. Yet, with only one possible lead, the police is also investigating any students […]
A crowd of about 100 people marched from Earl Hall to Teachers College around 11:00 PM tonight in response to the incident earlier today involving a hanging noose found tied to the door of an African American professor. Earlier today, WNBC identified the professor as Madonna G. Constantine, who teaches psychology and education. Protesters yelled […]
