PERSPECTIVES: Academic Philanthropy with the Collegiate Mission at Heart

UnKoch My Campus has issued a report on model policies to protect against donor interference.

FROM UNKOCH MY CAMPUS: “Early conceptions of higher education emphasized the university’s role in advancing knowledge and educating students to preserve civic and democratic values. Colleges and universities exist to serve the
common good, and preserving this mission requires that the academy remain independent from outside influence. [There are times when donors] seek to manipulate academia to serve private interests, and thus threaten the original purpose of the academy.”
