COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Faculty council groups from the University of Missouri system are in the early stages of considering formalizing a policy to revoke degrees.
Leona Rubin, chairwoman of University of Missouri's Faculty Council, said she mentioned the need for a degree revocation process during a general faculty council meeting this month.
Rubin told The Columbia Daily Tribune that the discussion is just beginning and likely will be handled first within the Intercampus Faculty Council, the body that represents all four campuses.
Bill Wiebold, a University of Missouri professor who chairs the Intercampus Faculty Council, said the group will first need to get information from the university system's academic office and seek legal advice from the general counsel.
