It seems to me that as universities take money from students for tuition then a part of that service is making sure that the academics are properly
qualified and that they do their job properly. To me not cheating is central to this. It a professor cheats or is unqualified then this taints the
tuition, the courses, the service the students get. There are many systems said to be in place to stop students fro cheating, it seems fair to know
what ones are in place for staff. It is not unknown for students to have their research stolen by academics: universities receive complaints each year
from research and other students about the theft of their work from university staff. I do think that if aan academic is caught cheating they should
be sued for any money gained and any money made from this money, as in the uk they have gained money under false pretences which is illegal, and there
is an act that prevents people to hold onto the proceeds of crime: including any money made from that money.
