国际东西方大学也是野鸡大学, 曾被夏威夷州向法院起诉其教学欺诈


以下为夏威夷州向法院起诉国际东西方大学(IEWU)和成中英的起诉书(2002年7月)主要内容:


原告: 夏威夷州, 由它的消费者保护办公室(Office of Consumer Protection)代表
被告: 国际东西方大学(IEWU)和成中英

夏威夷州, 由它的消费者保护办公室(Office of Consumer Protection), 诉国际东西方大学及成中英以寻求终止被告从事违反夏威夷州消费者保护法的各项行为。


根据的事实:


1) 由1999年7月1日起至今(2002年7月), IEWU经营未经认证的学位颁发机构。
2) IEWU和成中英从来不曾被美国教育部(the United States Secretary of Education)认可的认证机构认可。
3) 根据夏威夷州法, IEWU为未经授权的机构。
4) IEWU声称它在夏威夷州提供课程, 学位拥有校园和管理场所 (Hawaii Statutes - Section 446E-1 所指的 PRESENCE)。


违法行为:


1, 没有揭示其真实状况。 IEWU没有在它的手册, 宣传资料, 网站以及合同里揭示不曾被美国教育部(the United States Secretary of Education)认可的认证机构认可的真实现状。

2, 在夏威夷州没有一个办公场所。

3, 在夏威夷州未能成功招满25名学生。

4, IEWU在它的手册, 宣传资料, 以及合同里声称或暗示它已经或将会申请未来的认证资格(accreditation), 及因此而招收每一学生均违反夏威夷州法。

5, 欺骗性陈述,

在它的手册里作了一系列误导和欺骗性的声明, 包括声称它是美国电信教育委员会的活跃成员。 IEWU在它的手册, 宣传资料, 以及合同里作的这些声明及因此而招收每一学生均违反夏威夷州法。

6, 至少从1999年7月起, IEWU声称它在夏威夷州提供课程, 学位, 拥有校园和管理场所 (Hawaii Statutes - Section 446E-1 所指的 PRESENCE)。尽管IEWU不符合夏威夷州的合法资格,  它仍向学生收取学费和其他费用,它接收每一学生的学费均违反夏威夷州法。

7, 成中英个人的违法行为, 主动和被动的参与策划, 指挥, 监管, 参与从中受益, 促成, 操控, 明知而批准 而作为和令致上述不法行为发生。

8, 若不通过法院禁止, 他们将继续作为以上不法行为危害公众消费者。


原告申请法院:


1, 宣布被告的上述行为违法

2, 禁止其上诉行为直至夏威夷州吊销被告的商名, 商标, 注册和所有的授权证书

3, 禁止被告及其雇员, 中介, 继承者, 直接或间接, 通过个人行为或通过他人或任何机构和途径从事下列行为:

A, 提供高等教育课程或任何导致学位的课程;

B, 装作大专, 学院, 教育机构, 组织, 大学, 或任何类似的东西;

C, 在夏威夷州拥有和经营任何商业活动;

4, 根据夏威夷州法律对被告进行处罚。

5, 全额赔偿受害者, 包括判决前和后利息。

等等。
