N.J. college official leaves amid plagiarism probe

UNION TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A New Jersey college official has left the school after being accused of plagiarism.


A complaint accused Kean University associate vice president for academic affairs Katerina Andriotis of copying nearly nine pages of a 15-page report from two documents found online.


In an email, Andriotis tells The Star-Ledger of Newark (http://bit.ly/1f7pzbG ) she made the “serious oversight” of forgetting to include the final contributions pages because she was “overworked.”

A school spokesman would not say if Andriotis was fired or resigned. The school said it does not comment on personnel matters.

Andriotis has worked at Kean since last year.

The school in Union Township has 16,000 students.
