STATEMENT FROM IOWA STATE: Ph.D. REVOCATION
Iowa State University has revoked the Doctor of Philosophy Degree (Ph.D.) of Judith Graham. Ms. Graham received the degree from the Department of Family Studies in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences in 1989. The action follows a review of allegations that Ms. Graham's dissertation contained substantial material from other authors without proper citation and acknowledgment. In its ruling the university has decided to permit Ms. Graham to prepare and submit a new dissertation. Ms. Graham may appeal the decision to the Board of Regents.
