Calls on Kean Trustees to initiate an independent, academic investigation

UNION, NJ…The Kean University full-time faculty and professional staff Union has presented evidence of suspected fraud by President Dawood Farahi, the latest in a series of scandals that have plagued his presidency, and is calling for a full and independent investigation by the Kean University Board of Trustees, according to Union President Dr. James A. Castiglione.
Research by faculty members on and off campus has documented that Dr. Farahi’s resume and application for employment contain false claims of scholarship in the opinion of the Kean Federation of Teachers.
• Dr. Farahi’s curriculum vitae (CV) claims “Over 50 technical articles in major publications” but extensive searches of scholarly databases find no such publications.
• Dr. Farahi’s application for employment claims several publications that cannot be substantiated and several that have been refuted by the editors of their respective journals. For example, although Dr. Farahi claims to have an article titled, “Patterns of Administrative Efficiency” accepted for publication in Administrative Science Quarterly in 1981, the journal editor specifically refutes Dr. Farahi’s claim, stating emphatically, “ASQ has never published an article by Dawood Farahi, nor have we ever accepted an article by Dawood Farahi…”
