New documents show plagiarism charges against THIRD Harvard official 'much more damning' than university said

Yet another black woman in a position of authority at Harvard has been accused of plagiarism, and according to reporter Chris Rufo, the details are “much more damning” than initially reported.

How BizPac Review said: “Shirley Greene, an HES administrator who oversees Title IX compliance, was accused of 42 counts of plagiarism in her 2008 dissertation.”

The accusation made her “the third black woman at Harvard to be accused of academic fraud,” Rufo reported to X on Thursday.

“Harvard's plagiarism crisis is spiraling out of control,” he claimed.

According to Rufo, “Greene is a Title IX Coordinator affiliated with the Office for Gender Equity. She has worked to advance 'Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging' and hosted a panel on 'The Past, Present and Future of Juneteenth' with the DEI department.”

“The Harvard Crimson previously downplayed the allegations against Greene,” Rufo wrote, “but I have obtained the full plagiarism complaint which represents a far more damning indictment of Greene's scholarship than the student newspaper had let on.”

Greene “copied words, sentences, and paragraphs almost verbatim” from Janelle Lee Woo's 2004 dissertation, “Chinese American Female Identity” without “proper attribution or citation.”

In what “appears to be a flagrant violation of Harvard's plagiarism policy,” he also “lifted an entire table on 'Models of Racial/Ethnic Identity Development,' a core concept in the paper, without proper attribution to Woo Rufo reports.

“In total, the complaint identifies dozens of such passages in Greene's dissertation, ranging from minor infringements to what appears to be theft of concepts and language,” he wrote.

“Harvard's policy is pretty clear,” according to Rufo: “If you copy language word for word from another source and use that language in your paper, you are plagiarizing verbatim.”

Stop trying to hold on [Harvard] by Harvard standards,” one user told X. “It's totally inappropriate and unfair.”

In an update to the thread, which has already reached 1 million views on X, Rufo revealed: “The anonymous source who discovered Greene's alleged plagiarism tells me that Harvard's Director of Research Integrity, Stacey Springs, has confirmed receipt of the complaint”.

“Harvard needs to act,” Rufo said, “or watch its reputation continue to crumble.”
