Instructor misled LCC on credentials

By Hope Anderson

A Lower Columbia College math instructor resigned this month after officials learned he misled the college about completing a master's degree, according to documents obtained by The Daily News.

The instructor, however, says he made an innocent mistake.

David Liu, a faculty member since September 2001, resigned Dec. 9 after the college discovered the "falsification of information" on the application for employment he submitted in 2001, according to an Oct. 27 letter the college sent Liu.

Liu, a native of China, told school officials he never deliberately lied about his degree, and the college should have caught the error earlier.
