In October, packets were sent to several reporters in Texas and also to University of Texas officials, charging that there were numerous examples of plagiarism in the dissertation that earned Cárdenas her doctorate from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. It was never clear who produced the packets, although notes attached said that they came from anonymous faculty members at Pan American. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Personal Notes <ul><li>It is clear that Plagiarism is very serious for anyone comitting the crime.  Even some of the highest level of employees and personell do this.  It is also clear to me that you will be investigated and charged if found guilty.  It seems to me that one would rather be honest and do the work themselves so they would know the level of their own achievement, rather than that of someone else. </li></ul>
