American Schools and Foreign Money

Congress is debating how to address the intellectual corruption of America’s elite universities, and one idea is to require that academic institutions disclose funding from U.S. adversaries.

The House this month passed the Deterrent Act, 246-170, to shine a light on the billions of dollars that flow from foreign entities to U.S. colleges and universities.

Often the terms of these cash infusions are confidential.
