The Crimson reports that Harvard College is investigating an enormous plagiarism ring involving more than 100 undergraduates:
Harvard College’s disciplinary board is investigating nearly half of the more than 250 students who enrolled in one undergraduate course last spring for allegedly plagiarizing answers or inappropriately collaborating on the class’ final take-home exam.
Dean of Undergraduate Education Jay M. Harris, who declined to name the course in question, said the magnitude of the case was “unprecedented in anyone’s living memory.”
