Kean University’s full time faculty and professional staff union is calling on Gov. Christie to investigate allegations that Kean President Dawood Farahi falsified his credentials dating back to his employment application in 1982. In a news release, the union said, “Under Dr. Farahi’s failed leadership, New Jersey’s third-largest university has closed academic departments, laid-off critical student advisors, reduced the number of full-time faculty and increased tuition and fees to pay for debt that has skyrocketed over 600 per cent.” The staff is calling it “Soprano State University.”

Yeah, but he hired former Gov. Jim McGreevey to teach ethics at the Union County school. That was a get, wasn’t it? Doesn’t that afford Kean bragging rights over Princeton?

Credentials are taken very seriously in academic circles. There should be an investigation that includes people from other colleges who understand academia to clear the air once and for all. This could be settled easily by producing the documents in question or evidence he accomplished what he said he did. There is a lot at stake. Loss of academic accreditation could make Kean degrees worthless.
