DENVER (AP) - The Associated Press has learned the military is investigating whether two senior officials at the Air Force Academy provided misleading information about faculty credentials to an organization that accredits colleges and universities.
A document obtained by the AP says the Air Force inspector general ordered a formal investigation into a complaint that theacademy's dean and vice dean of faculty gave incorrect information to the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
The association reviews academics at more than 1,000 member colleges and universities.
The group says in a statement that it's aware of the investigation. A spokesman declined to elaborate.
Officials at the Pentagon and the academy declined to confirm or deny an investigation. The academy says the dean and vice dean have no comment.
