Capital
campaign
approachesbusiness sector for donations
By Naomi RomanchokThe Capital Campaign hasraised over $2.7 million in the"family
phase"
and is now go-ing headstrong into the cor-porate or "public" phase ofthe fundraising effort.
2
Having already raised 60percent of the
goal,
the
Capital
Campaign hopes to draw
$750,000
from various ErieCounty industries andbusinesses.The
"family
phase" drewfinancial support of $1.8million from five majorcontributors?
_
The*
Board
of Trusteesdonated over $1.5 million;faculty, staff and administra-tion pledged some $115,000;the President's Associatesgave over $90,000; the
;first
year pledge from the Alumniwas $75,000; and the Mer-cyhurst Student
*Government
gave $25,000. Some Erie cor-porations gave advance giftstotalling $950,000.
\
According to F. Brady Louis,Special Assistant to the Presi-dent for the Capital Campaign,"This kind of support beforewe go to the public is exciting.It indicates that this is a viablecampaign and
tharour
goalscan be reached."

The
corporate phase gotunderway last week with a

As Dr. Garvey points out,there has been a great deal offundraising going on in thecommunity.

Gannon has just finished its
campaign,
while Behrend andthe Diocese of Erie
are*
cur-rently in the midst of their
fun-
draising drives. "We're like thefourth plane on the runway,"quips Garvey.

Do corporations have the right to control curriculum?
By Chris AlessiAccording to a Boston in-vestmentfirm,some collegesand universities across the na-tion
I
may be weighting theircourse offerings toward mathand science in order to attractlarger corporate contributions."For many universities andcolleges, 'selling their pro-grams to corporations andother philanthropic agenciesand individuals is key toeconomic
viability,"
\
says
theFranklin Research andDevelopment Corporationstudy. |

Many schools are becoming
progressively?
dependent onsupport from the
private-sec-
tor because aid given to
col-
leges
from
federal and stategovernments is decreasing.
"For
the past two
tojftnree
years, there has been severalarticles written discussing theneed to tie academic institu-tions into
^corporate
institu-tions/' according to AcademicDean Dr. David Palmer.I
"This
is due to the value ofdirectly producing people whowill go into jobs in those in-stitutions," adds Palmer.There may be a problem withthis though, "if an institutiongets too closely tied in, then
subtley
and then more directlylater
on,
you may
find
yourself
WuTfcypQhslve tonhe
directdemands of the'corporations/*Problems such as this, donot arise
untilfthese
corpora-tions begin to say whatcourses and institution shouldhave."While this may beallowable to some extent, thefear and underlying questionis
'how
far do we go?' It mayget to a point where the cor-porations
I
are
^giving *.the
universities! an ultimatum:either
you
teach this sequenceof courses, or
we,
the corpora-
tion,
won't give you
the
money," said Palmer.
3
"It
is
when an academic in-stitution becomes closely tiedwith an outside source, thatone must be very weary aboutbeing dictated
to,"
he added.
K
The integrity of
any
universi-ty must always be maintained.
If
the demands by any outsidesource become too great, andthe university begins to fall tothese demands, it is
here.that
authority shifts Into the wronghands."Palmer feels ithat Mer-cyhurst College has not had todeal with this situation. "Wedon't have strong enough tieswith corporations so that wehave ever felt that force of dic-tating the curriculum."The problem seems to bemore evident at larger institu-tions. These institutions mayprove to have a distinct tie inwith
another
corporation.
"At
these* institutions,money for research is directlyear-marked for particulardepartments that
have
a
directinterest with research beingperformed at a ^corporation."Palmer
said.
"Anytime the normal incom-ing money for any college oruniversity dwindles, one feelsthe pressure to replace it withsomething else, then the needto find some outside sourcesmay be greater. Therefore, aninstitution must be run bythose who are aware of thesubtle influences that go on,"Palmer
said."
The Boston report claimed
,
that there is evidence that thearts and humanities are suffer-ing because colleges arerushing to
-create
new math,science
.and
engineeringcourses to attract more cor-porate donors.Palmer says that
this
maybe
true^to
some extent, there is
definately
a much greater in-fluence; that of the students."They (the students) comein
>with
expectations aboutwhat they ultimately want toget when they graduate. Goodinstitutions, though, don't
evenjgive
in to that totally,
becausefthey
must keep inmind the
importance.of
liberalarts.
%.
The Capital Campaign, cur-rently
underway,
\
would
seemto have been the perfect op-portunity for donors to voicetheir opinions. Not so, says Dr.
Palmer
J
Mosijjg^i
up guidelines
Detore
they goout and ask for money. Theserules
are
understood anduniversally accepted byeveryone who gives
and
is ask-ed to give.It is not at all unusual for
the
name of a corporation to beused somewhere on campus.The library will soon take thename of the well know papercompany, Hammermill, whorecently donated $250,000 tothe college.
J |
£i|
''But?
that's 5it," states
Palmer.?
"There are no otherstrings attached. For example,this doesn't mean
tharall
the
books -
will bechanged!toengineering books. We stillhave our own freedom to buywhatever books
*
we deemnecessary."
p Mercyhurst
College Presi-
dent
Dr. William
{Garvey
strongly agrees. Of the capitalfunds collected, approximate-ly
$1
million is coming directlyfrom local business and in-dustry, and $250,00 of that iscoming solely from Hammer-
mill.
"The majority of fundswill come from friends of thecollege, the alumni, trustees,sisters and wealthy citizens ofthe community. So in a smallcollege -atmosphere, the cor-porate world is not a major fac-tor," Garvey states.
I
Mercyhurst College has a$9.2 million budget. Of thisamount, approximately$100,000
f
is furnished
from
business and industry, ex-cluding funds attainedthrough the Capital Campaign.Garvey said
,4
hat "fromthese facts alone, one can seethat industry is by no means amajor benefactor or supporterof this college."! J
i
"Onlyfl.3
percent of highereducations needs are met bycorporate contributions,"
Jsay
Arthur Kammerman, a memberwith the Council for FinancialAid to Education.
f~$
I
J
w
Dr. Garvey
reducesjj&the
charges of corporate controlon campuses, "There are over2000 colleges and suniver-sitites
In
this country, and thecorporate controlling of themmay be true in half of a dozencolleges. This report seems tobe greatly exaggerated."Garvey acknowledges thatMercyhurst
3
would
<
never ac-cept as gift which had a stringattached that would
limit*the
train of thought.He also believes 99 percentof the presidents of collegesacross the U.S. would feel thesame.
P£
It is
an
issue which does notaffect 98 to 99 percent of theuniversities.
Still,
the Boston
report
advises, "the extent towhich corporate donationshave strings attached to their
|
gifts may actually limit thei diversity of thought."
