Why did she resign? Read about it at: Jan Boxill, implicated in UNC scandal, resigns.
Apparently Boxill was counselor to the women’s basketball team and she participated in a scheme to give athletes decent grades in "courses" that didn't exist or required minimal work. Some of the courses were in African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) and some were philosophy courses.
[The Provost's] letter to Boxill said there was "compelling evidence that over a period of several years you knowingly participated in grossly improper practices in your roles as a member of the faculty and an academic advisor to student athletes."Bye-bye Boxhill.
The letter, released Thursday, accused Boxill of several acts of misconduct:
▪ Requesting that AFAM employees provide specific grades to students.
▪ Steering athletes to AFAM courses that she knew were not overseen or taught by faculty, required only a paper and were graded by former office manager Deborah Crowder.
▪ Editing and writing portions of text inserted into the papers of the students she tutored.
▪ Allowing students to enroll in independent study classes in philosophy that required little academic work.
