Higher Education Corruption Monitor
Why the corruption monitor
Almost every day, the media features news on academic corruption. Plagiarism, bogus degrees, degree mills, accreditation mills, research misconduct, and administrative misbehavior are among the most frequent topics, but academic corruption usually goes unnoticed in the public mainstream; rarely does it make the front page. However, this trend is already changing and academic corruption is captivating the attention of journalists and readers, and sometimes shocking the public.
The primary goal of the Higher Education Corruption Monitor (HECM) is to provide resources on corruption in higher education to all those interested in academic corruption issues and to serve as a forum for information exchange.
