Trenčín University degrees to be returned by dean’s children

The children of the dean of the School of Social and Economic Sciences at Trenčín University are to return the university degrees that they were awarded after short study periods, the rector of Alexander Dubček University, Miroslav Mečár, said at a press conference on Monday, November 2, in Trenčín, as reported by the TASR newswire.

The children of the dean of the School of Social and Economic Sciences at Trenčín University are to return the university degrees that they were awarded after short study periods, the rector of Alexander Dubček University, Miroslav Mečár, said at a press conference on Monday, November 2, in Trenčín, as reported by the TASR newswire.

Mečár was originally also supposed to report on the results of an inspection carried out at the university by the Education Ministry, but he presented only a four-point programme aimed at removing shortcomings at the university.

“I fully agree with the preliminary results of the inspection and we will adopt appropriate measures based on the results,” the rector said, announcing that investigations will be carried out at all schools within the university and an electronic system to supervise quality will be introduced.

The rector announced that he will make personnel changes in several posts within the next few months. Mečár said that he will order an inspection of all bachelor degrees and diploma works since 2005 in reaction to suspicions of plagiarism. TASR
