U. of New Hampshire Disciplines Professor Accused of Plagiarizing a Governor's Letter
The University of New Hampshire has disciplined a professor for "scholarly misconduct" after he plagiarized the governor of Delaware in a column published last year in a newspaper.
The opinion article, written by Marc D. Hiller, an associate professor of health management on the Durham campus who is a fervent antismoking advocate, argued in favor of a ban on smoking in public places. It was published in The Union Leader, a newspaper in Manchester, N.H., on June 1.
