Prof. Donald "Don" L. McCabe
May 2006: "Don McCabe is a Professor of Management & Global Business at Rutgers University. Over the last fifteen years he has done extensive research on college cheating, surveying over 100,000 students at more than 140 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada. He has also surveyed over 18,000 high school students in the United States during the last five years. His work has been published widely in business, education and sociology journals and he is founding president of The Center for Academic Integrity."http://www.academicintegrity.org/board_bios_all.htm#mccabe
July 2010: "The figure declined somewhat from 65 percent earlier in the decade, but the researcher who conducted the surveys, Donald L. McCabe, a business professor at Rutgers, doubts there is less of it. Instead, he suspects students no longer regard certain acts as cheating at all, for instance, cutting and pasting a few sentences at a time from the Internet."http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/06/education/06cheat.html
March 2006: Sociologists argue that the upsurge in school dishonesty also reflects attitudes in the culture at large, where cheating has become acceptable and even admired. International tycoons make enviable fortunes through market manipulation and fraud: think Enron, WorldCom and Martha Stewart. Scientists like South Korea's once revered stem-cell research pioneer, Hwang Woo Suk, fake lab results. In a recent poll of 25,000 high-schoolers by the California-based Josephson Institute of Ethics, nearly half agreed with the statement 'A person has to lie or cheat sometimes in order to succeed.' In Australia, a new study from Griffith University of students at four major campuses revealed that 40 percent believe faking research results is a 'minor' offense. 'Students feel like it's just no longer a big deal to cheat,' says Don McCabe, the founder of Duke University's Center for Academic Integrity.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11904737
June 2007: The reluctance of school officials to quantify cheating has some experts like Donald McCabe, a professor of management and global business at Rutgers Business School, concerned. McCabe conducted a survey in 2006 that revealed that B-school students tend to cheat more often than their counterparts in other graduate school programs.

May 2006: In a survey of nearly 62,000 undergraduates on 96 campuses over the past four years, two-thirds of the students admitted to cheating. The survey was conducted by Don McCabe, a Rutgers professor who has studied academic misconduct and helped found the Center for Academic Integrity at Duke.http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/18/education/18cheating.html
