Donors & Funding- Research Post 3

“UnKoch My Campus: Opposing Billionaires’ Efforts to Infiltrate Higher Education”- Truthout

This article presents the Koch Brothers as men who use well-funded attempts to promote their pro-business agenda. The pair have given “$109,778,257 to 308 colleges across the country”. The Koch brothers have been a generous donor to George Mason University for many years and are responsible for big projects such as the Antonin Scalia Law School name change, etc. The article goes into depth of all the money the Koch Brothers have donated to many colleges along the east coast. I plan to use this article for my project on donations and funding for George Mason University, to compare how much the Koch brothers do for our university compared to others. I also plan to research and see if their donations have a positive or negative affect on said campuses in the country. The Koch Brothers, being fairly conservative often bump heads on liberal campus, where most of their controversies,toward what they could be affecting in the universities, occurs.
