In what is being called the largest admissions scams in U.S. history, referred to as the Varsity Blues Scandal, at least 50 people, including celebrities, were charged with felonies. The scandal shook the American people’s beliefs in the integrity of higher education institutions.
My guest today, Joseph Jay, author of Bloomberg Law article titled, “I Helped Investigate 18 Years of Paper Classes at UNC – Lessons for the Admissions Scandal,” joins me to highlight lessons learned from his work on the University of North Carolina paper class scandal. We explore the takeaways from these scandals and what C-Suite members can learn from how colleges and universities responded to the scandals.
