American Universities Accepted $10 Billion From Foreign Countries Over 5 Years

According to a report by Breitbart, multiple American universities have been accepting billions of dollars’ worth of donations from foreign governments over the course of five years from 2013 to 2018, totaling about $10 billion, and with $1 billion unaccounted for.

The Department of Education is currently investigating multiple universities for their various donations from such countries as China, Russia, Saudia Arabia, and Qatar. The Department of Education also said that representatives of such foreign countries have infiltrated universities in order to “steal proprietary research,” while others have been attempting to spread propaganda in favor of their respective governments.

In many cases, universities that have accepted such donations subsequently agree to open up foreign campuses in the countries that have donated to them, with some of them incorporating the aforementioned propaganda into their curriculum as fact.

According to the Department of Education’s statement, a “preliminary review suggests some American IHEs (Institutions of Higher Education) relentlessly pursue funds from autocracies such as China and Qatar,” and that “the evidence we have reviewed to date tracks Congressional findings that American colleges and universities have provided unprecedented levels of access to foreign governments, corporations, and persons without adequate oversight.”
