The Wikipedia:Notability (academics) guidelines are very strict. This professor is not demonstrated to be a chair or highest elected level official of the department or another important research institution, a member of a national academy or other prestigious organization in his field, having received a coveted award in his field, not an editor in chief of an important publication in his field, etc etc. The only possible criteria he could meet are number 1 (The person's research has made significant impact in their scholarly discipline, broadly construed, as demonstrated by independent reliable sources) or number 4 (The person's academic work has made a significant impact in the area of higher education, affecting a substantial number of academic institutions) which remains to be proven. Please keep in mind that for number 1, the work must not merely be cited but HIGHLY cited (see the guidelines page for more details) and "Simply having authored a large number of published academic works is not considered sufficient to satisfy Criterion 1". For number 4: "Criterion 4 may be satisfied, for example, if the person has authored several books that are widely used as textbooks (or as a basis for a course) at multiple institutions of higher education." Anyway, I've done my best to pinpoint the only criteria I could see him fulfilling, so it's up to the creators/major editors of this page to show he meets those criteria! --Belleiseult (talk) 21:24, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Also this piece reads like some self congratulatory piece. There are no sources cited for his claims being accepted. Reads like it was written by him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:56, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
