Students and faculty have been clear: George Mason University must begin reviewing all of their future donor agreements for conflicts of interest and make them more transparent to the public.
The Provost at George Mason University will be presenting his recommendations to the university’s board to improve gift acceptance policies next Wednesday. This is a good sign, but the university has long-ignored calls from faculty and students for change. I need your help to make sure the Board of Visitors at George Mason University honors faculty and student demands, too.
It is time for the university’s Board of Visitors to officially implement safeguards to protect against this type of influence moving forward. But it’s hard work to hold our leaders accountable while also studying for finals.
Can you help me motivate the Board?
