Kean University president may have faked resume

Dawood Farahi, President of Kean University in New Jersey, may yet earn our coveted “David Edmondson Award for Resume Inflation.” The university’s Board has been asked to investigate these charges:

  • Articles “accepted” for publication that cannot be found in any journal
  • Journals and societies, in which he claims to have published or presented, that appear not to exist
  • Publishing houses, that he claims have published his manuscripts, that appear not to exist
  • The claim of “Over 50 technical articles in major publications”
  • The claim that he served as “Acting Academic Dean” at Avila College.

In addition, the university’s accreditation is in jeopardy.

NB: The charges were dug up by the faculty union, which has been battling Dawood for years over practically everything. But for a university president to not anticipate that his academics will do what they do best — research — is just plain stupid.
