Business Professor Charged With Fraud

Business Professor Charged With Fraud

University of Rhode Island professor John K. Dunn, a lawyer, has been charged with three felony counts in an alleged mortgage fraud scheme.

Professor Dunn teaches “Legal and Ethical Environment of Business” in the University’s Entrepreneurial Management & Law program. From the program description:

“The entrepreneur faces unique situations and needs a variety of competencies to meet these challenges. The major in Entrepreneurial Management is intended to provide the student with a background to tackle all aspects of a small business or entrepreneurial endeavor. Our Entrepreneurial Management curriculum builds the skills necessary to successfully develop and manage a business enterprise.”

The enterprise in which the Professor engaged, say State Police, involved mortgage fraud and obtaining hundreds of thousands of dollars under false pretenses. And why not? The University of Rhode Island motto is “Think Big. We Do.”

    Nice motto! Were the university able to issue a press release? Can you post it? I’d like to know what they have to say about this. Thanks.

    Nope. I guess the B-school doesn’t teach crisis management.
