Source of Ph.D. David R. Hawkins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Admitted to the program on March 21, 1991, Hawkins received his Ph.D. in Health and Human Services on September 30, 1995 from Columbia Pacific University (CPU). CPU was never accredited but it was at that time still approved to operate by the State of California. CPU's approval was revoked in December 1995 after a period of review and response following CPU's application in 1994; pending appeals, CPU was authorized to issue degrees through June 25, 1997 . California's Deputy Attorney General Asher Rubin called CPU "a diploma mill" as well as "a consumer fraud, a complete scam" and a "phony operation" which offered "totally worthless [degrees]...to enrich its unprincipled promoters."
 The Associated Press reported that the state had been trying to shut down the correspondence school almost from the day it opened, saying CPU "had virtually no academic standards." Neither in his books nor on his website does Hawkins disclose the source of his Ph.D. In response, stating to be reinstalled into worldliness as an "ordinary man" after a decade of seclusion, Hawkins explains his engagement for an additional title due to the "credibility problem in society". Two "Dr. Dr.s" would grant "greater fire power to the truth" of what he has to say.
Hawkins' CPU faculty mentor was Sheldon Deal, a chiropractor who was a former chairman (1978 to 1983) of the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK). Chiropractic researchers who reviewed the studies that came out of ICAK concluded that “no valid conclusions could be drawn concerning their report of findings“.
where did he get his 'sir' title from ? Sealand
This is from the same page:
"California recognizes CPU degrees earned before June 25, 1997, as "legally valid" for use in the state."
Its a legal degree.
