UnKoch My Campus
A COOPERATIVE CAMPAIGN TO EXPOSE AND EXPEL UNDUE DONOR INFLUENCE IN ACADEMIA.
The corrosive influence of money in U.S. politics is a well known problem that crosses the vast partisan divide we currently face. Education and higher education specifically have followed this trend, as companies and wealthy executives see opportunities to leverage a school's financial needs with their personal ideologies and business preferences.
Nobody has field tested this pernicious influence as doggedly as Charles Koch, CEO of Koch Industries.
Recordings and documents from the Charles Koch Foundation and its network of professors shows how Koch's academic programming is political rather than educational, "leveraging science and universities" for political gain.
Koch Industries and their network of wealthy donors use an "integrated strategy," called the Structure of Social Change that uses targeted funding of universities, think tanks, and political groups for the "implementation of policy change."
Koch's network, many of whom make up the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, have been using this integrated strategy for decades, and their spending is accelerating. Read more about Koch's politically driven academics.
In the Koch Foundation's OWN WORDS:
"The Structure of Social Change"
KOCH'S "INTEGRATED STRATEGY" USES UNIVERSITIES, THINK TANKS, AND POLITICAL SPENDING FOR
THE "IMPLEMENTATION OF POLICY CHANGE"
