With less public support for public universities, private funding with strings attached becomes harder to resist. One of the most dramatic examples was a program pushed by former BB&T bank CEO John Allison, now head of the libertarian Cato Institute. Beginning in 2007, BB&T donated an average of $1.1 million each to more than 60 U.S. colleges to promote study of the “moral foundations of capitalism.” The agreements often required the establishment of chaired faculty positions and courses in which the libertarian novelist Ayn Rand’s book “Atlas Shrugged” would be required reading.

S. Douglas Beets, a Wake Forest University professor, recently published a paper in the Journal of Academic Ethics titled “BB&T, Atlas Shrugged, and the Ethics of Corporation Influence on College Curricula.” Beets said corporate incursion threatens the nature of the university itself.

“If you’ve got a corporation actively involved in the curriculum and involved in selecting professors, I think you’ve got a problem,” Beets said last week. “Are you letting the highest bidder design the curriculum?”
