Qatar has become a major donor to American universities in recent years. Between 2001 and 2021, the petro-state gave universities at least $4.7 billion. Though the country may be small, its donations to American universities present large ethical and security concerns.
Join the National Association of Scholars on Thursday, September 15, at 2 pm ET for our special webinar, "Outsourced to Qatar." The webinar will feature NAS's new case study on Northwestern University's branch campus, as well as our recent exposé on Texas A&M's failure to report $100 million in Qatari funds.
Panelists include Neetu Arnold, Senior Research Associate at the National Association of Scholars and lead author of Outsourced to Qatar; Dan Currell, Fellow at the National Security Institute and former Deputy Under Secretary and Senior Advisor in the U.S. Department of Education; and Michael Rubin, Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
Speakers will discuss the implications of Qatar funding on national security, research, and academic freedom.
