Ryan Stowers discusses academic freedom in USA Today

In a letter to the editor in USA Today on September 2, Charles Koch Foundation Executive Director Ryan Stowers discussed the Foundation’s support for university programs and our commitment to academic freedom and open inquiry. Stowers wrote, “The breadth of our support speaks to our track record of operating with integrity and respect for academic freedom. We have provided support to more than 400 universities across the country over the last 10 years … Universities and scholars decide what and how to conduct their research and follow that research wherever it may lead.”
