|As of a few minutes ago, the above "faculty profile" of Derek Reeve was|
still available at the Saddleback College website.
Judging by data available on Concordia's website, Reeve had been the university's only Poli Sci instructor for recent semesters.
Some have speculated that (1) Concordia let Reeve go and that (2) they did so because of a recent report that he plagiarized several political articles on the San Juan Capistrano Patch. Neither idea has yet been confirmed.
Meanwhile, as far as we know, despite his habit of presenting others' works as his own, Reeve continues to be employed as an instructor at Saddleback College. He was observed teaching his two Poli Sci courses there last week. Further, I just looked at Saddleback College's schedule of courses for the Spring of 2012, and, there, I found that Reeve is scheduled to teach two Poli Sci courses:
The two colleges where Reeve teaches political science, Concordia University and Saddleback, declined to comment on [Reeve’s apparent plagiarism]. A Saddleback spokeswoman suggested it would be inappropriate for the school to say anything because Reeve produced his blogs outside the academic forum. [My emphasis.]Does the latter suggestion imply that Saddleback College is OK with Reeve's repeated plagiarism? I guess so. Wow.
And where's Saddleback's Academic Senate in all this?
