Professor who forged diploma dismissed

Xiamen University has dismissed a professor who forged her PhD diploma.

Xiamen University in East China's Fujian province confirmed to the Xiamen Daily newspaper on Wednesday that Fu Jin, a professor at Medical College who claimed to have a pharmacology PhD diploma from Columbia University, forged her diploma.

Fu has acknowledged that her degree was fake, the report said.

The university said it has dismissed the professor and will offer a deep apology to students, faculty members and the public.

Fang Zhouzi, a famous fraud fighter, accused Fu of defrauding her degree in a post on his Sina micro blog.

Fang wrote that he began investigating her education background after he received information from an unnamed source who claimed to have worked at Columbia University.

Fang said his suspicion grew after he discovered that the PhD major on the resume on the website of Xiamen University's Medical College was different from that on the website of the university's School of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

"How could a person forget her own major?" he asked.

Xiamen University's information office could not be reached for comment.

According to Xiamen Daily, Fu began working as a visiting professor at Xiamen University's Medical College in 2004, when she applied with a forged diploma from Columbia University. She became a full-time faculty in 2009.

The university acknowledged their negligence in identifying the degree, the report said.

The university said it did not verify the authenticity of Fu's diploma when she applied for a visiting professor position in 2004, since the post is part-time. In 2008, when Fu applied to be a full-time professor, the university again failed to check her diploma because she had been teaching at the university for four years.
