Admissions Scheme Sinks Stanford College Admissions Scandal Exposes 2 days ago 08:48
"The U.S. Department of Justice today charged a number of people around the country in an alleged scheme in which payments were made to try to win the admission of prospective students to a number of U.S. colleges and universities. Stanford's head sailing coach was among those charged in the case.
Stanford has been cooperating with the Department of Justice in its investigation and is deeply concerned by the allegations in this case. The university and its athletics programs have the highest expectations of integrity and ethical conduct. The head coach of the Stanford sailing team has been terminated.
The charges state that sailing head coach John Vandemoer accepted financial contributions to the sailing program from an intermediary in exchange for agreeing to recommend two prospective students for admission to Stanford. Neither student came to Stanford. However, the alleged behavior runs completely counter to Stanford's values.
Based on the Department of Justice investigation to date, we have no evidence that the alleged conduct involves anyone else at Stanford or is associated with any other team. However, we will be undertaking an internal review to confirm that."
Sailing Illustrated writes:
“According to Vandemoer’s profile on Stanford’s athletic web site, his teams have won 29 of 30 PCCSC spring conference championships and have qualified for at least the semifinals of all three spring ICSA national championships. He graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2000 with a degree in geochemistry. He was Navy’s head sailing coach for two seasons before taking the Stanford job.”
