Jerry Funt is a co-founder of UnKoch My Campus. He first got involved as a freshman at  Florida State University with Progress Coalition - a student group that helped found the UnKoch network. Originally involved in efforts to fight tuition increases and budget cuts, he quickly became involved with a variety of student-based issues such as transparency in education, open-source learning materials, and voting rights. Jerry studied both philosophy and economics at FSU, and his time spent in the department of economics gave him a first-hand perspective as to how the influence of donor money can influence the way a department teaches. He has been quoted about this experience in New Yorker author Jane Mayer’s 2016 book “Dark Money.” He can be contacted at jerryfunt@gmail.com.
