Goldman Sachs scholarship challenged at Senate
January 24, 2011 @ admin
A controversial MBA scholarship has been introduced at Western. As it sits now, the Goldman Sachs Scholars Fund MBA Award (School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, Business) is under review by the Senate Committee on Academic Planning and Awards (SCAPA). It is under review because Dr. Nick Dyer-Witheford, Associate Dean and Associate Professor in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS), raised concerns at the past SCAPA meeting about UWO receiving money from an organization such as Goldman Sachs.
Below is a copy of the questions Dr. Dyer-Witheford presented to SCAPA to supplement his concerns. A couple questions need to be asked in regard to this donation, starting with who approached who, and when?
This matter is currently under review by SCAPA as well as the Vice-President External Kevin Goldthorp, and a report to Senate will be made next month about whether this donation will exist come May 2011.
