Some of you may have already heard about the unfortunate news concerning Jan Boxill, who had been voted as the next Warren Fraleigh Distinguished Scholar, and her involvement in a case of academic dishonesty at the University of North Carolina.
I am writing to you to inform you that she is willingly withdrawing as Warren Fraleigh Distinguished Scholar to avoid further negative press coverage.
While we fervently hope for a fair resolution, the executive has accepted her withdrawal. This is the best course of action for the sake of Warren’s good name as well as IAPS reputation.
Should you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to contact me, or any of our Executive members.
On behalf of the Executive and the association I thank you for your support,
President, International Association for the Philosophy of Sport (IAPS)
