News Regarding a Visiting Faculty Member
To the Williams Community,
On Tuesday evening the College learned through a media report that someone named Ernest B. Moore had pleaded guilty in district court in the District of Columbia to charges of fraud. http://tiny.cc/gMRFc
Visiting Assistant Professor Bernard Moore confirmed to us that he was this person. We informed him that he was suspended from the College until we can understand the situation more fully.
The Political Science Department has an arrangement in place to provide instruction for the course he has been teaching this semester.
At this point, the Congressional Black Caucus Symposium, which he has helped to organize, will go ahead this Monday as planned. http://tiny.cc/Qhxas
In a tightly knit community such as ours, people are understandably eager to learn what they can about this developing situation. I will write to you again as more details emerge.
