Posted on 05/04/2012 5:15:01 PM PDT by RightGeek
A nine-month internal investigation into the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill revealed unauthorized grades, forged signatures and other irregularities according to a 10-page report released Friday.
According to the report, which covered courses from the start of the summer session in 2007 to the end of the summer session in 2011, at least 45 courses taught by Nyangoro were found to be aberrant or atypical. The courses have evidence of work and grades, but no indication that a professor taught or communicated with the students or even reviewed the completed work.
Between 2007 and 2009, grades for 59 students in nine courses were submitted to the registrar with forged signatures of professors who said they never taught the course. During that same span, several faculty members stated that there were unauthorized grade changes and they were not aware of who authorized the adjustments.
Long-time African and Afro-American Studies administrator Debbie Crowder retired in the fall of 2009. There were no reports of unauthorized grade changes in the department following the second summer session of 2009.

Just curious - where do students who graduate from the Department of African and Afro-American Studies find employment??
We should build factories, make war machines and hire a gazillion machinists, steel workers, laborers, electricians, etc.
Do they have similar problems in the White-Studies department?
Just another egregious example of why college tuition is so expensive. It is useless courses like this, and their cost that colleges could save money by getting rid of.
What possible job could anyone get by studying Black Studies? Oh I forgot. Community Organiser, and eventually the Presidency.
large corporations that want to avoid EEOC shakedowns.
Harvard law School?
As welfare workers, social workers or, mayhap, as community organizers ... you know, the usual.
Affirmative action + a degree in Afro-Studies and you’re ready to intern with Al Sharpton to eventually have your own shake-down franchise.
The Department’s most popular course is “How to Lie, Cheat, and Forge Like Obama 101.”
Tar Heads gone wild.
Personally, I think the most widespread problem is that there such a think as a “Afro-Studies Department” at all. They may as well be truthful and call it the “Ethno-victimology Department”
I was told I was not to use the term “colored folk” anymore. I switched to “Africanized-Americans.”
Ahm shocked shocked I tell ya............
‘Just curious - where do students who graduate from the Department of African and Afro-American Studies find employment??’

Sales and marketing departments of large corporations who can never meet their diversity goals.
They get promoted very quickly to director or vice president positions because its very difficult to find college-educated blacks.
