A dustup at Boston University over a dean’s resume:

The dean of Boston University’s College of Communication, John J. Schulz, has acknowledged that he misstated information on his academic résumé when he wrote he was one of only two Oxford doctoral students to win approval of their dissertation in social studies in 1981. Schulz also had written that he was among 19 students who presented dissertations during the same period when he earned his doctorate from the English university. In fact, Oxford’s social studies faculty awarded 30 such degrees in 1980-81 and 41 in 1981-82, according to the university.
