The administration at Princeton University isn’t answering questions about whether it has plans to investigate a prominent professor who has been accused of plagiarizing passages for both his doctoral dissertation and a 2015 book.

Princeton spokesperson Michael Hotchkiss declined multiple requests by The College Fix to comment on whether the school would be investigating Kruse, but he has provided a statement to the school paper. “The University is committed to the highest ethical and scholarly standards, and thus takes allegations of research misconduct very seriously,” Hotchkiss told the Princetonian. “We are carefully reviewing the concerns that have been shared with the University, and will handle them in accordance with University policy,” Hotchkiss said.
