March 10, 2014

Georgia Tech is moving to fire Jochen Teizer, an associate professor of construction engineering, over allegations that he forced students to pay him money -- a total of about $20,000 - that was intended for their stipends, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The university has said that it will reimburse the students for the funds paid to Teizer, who could not be reached for comment. WSBTV News reported that the students were graduate students from Asia whom Teizer supervised, and that not all of them were fluent in English.
