The Chronicle has the news here:
… In March, The Chronicle first reported that Vincent’s dissertation appeared to copy at least one passage from another work without citation. Vincent earned a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004. An anonymous email that was sent to The Chronicle and other outlets alleged multiple instances of plagiarism.
After the allegations, the board chair stated that the trustees would investigate the issue. On Friday, Vincent resigned as president, just nine months after taking office.
“After a great deal of thought and consideration, in the best interests of my family and myself, and for the love of Hobart and William Smith, I have decided to tender my resignation in order to explore new opportunities,” Vincent wrote in the statement. …
Vincent was hired at UO by Dave Frohnmayer in 2005 to create UO’s Diversity Plan, which was required by the settlement of Joe Wade’s racial discrimination lawsuit against Frohnmayer and Provost John Moseley.
Frohnmayer never told Vincent (or the faculty) about the lawsuit and the requirements of the settlement – they heard about it from me. Vincent left shortly after for UT-Austin, replaced by the over-committed Charles Martinez and then by Yvette Alex-Assensoh.
