CUNY ‘Integrity Expert’ Fired for Allegedly Yanking Female Student’s Ponytail

CUNY ‘Integrity Expert’ Fired for Allegedly Yanking Female Student’s Ponytail

“was allegedly giving a self-defense lesson”

Before you feel too bad for this guy, read the story below. He was double-dipping by collecting a salary and a pension.

The Daily Mail reports:

CUNY’s integrity expert is fired from his teaching position after ‘yanking a female student’s ponytail’ months after investigators looked into allegations of double-dipping

The City University of New York’s director of vendor integrity has reportedly been let go after he pulled a female student’s hair.

According to the New York Post, Vincent Green agreed to a settlement and left his teaching position at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City in November.

Green was teaching a graduate-level course called Organization Theory and Management and was allegedly giving a self-defense lesson when pulled on the student’s ponytail.

A college spokesman told the Post that Green resigned on November 13 and paid a $2,400 fine.

This is not the first time that Green was involved in questionable behavior.

In April, the Post revealed that Green was double-dipping, earning both a pension and a taxpayer salary.

Green was earning a salary of $164,114 from the foundation that manages federal research grants and collecting a $91,628 pension at the same time.

To do so, Green is supposed to receive a waiver. But, being paid through the non-profit helps get around state rules.

to the full extent allowed by law.


So fire him for:

-Double dipping

-Physical confrontation without consent

Don’t fire him for:

-Physical confrontation even if the student consented to be part of the lesson

Also, it’s not uncommon for a university to force an instructor into emeritus status whereby pension is collected and a salary may be offered if the person continues to teach.

Retiring a heavily salaried professor, even if they continue, is sometimes cheaper than keeping them at current active status.
