Unethical Leadership Concerning the Sinquefield Donation

Below is a link to the slides for the presentation by Dave Rapach (professor of Economics) at the September 18, 2019 Saving SLU Teach-In. The presentation focused on the violations of well-established academic norms and the ethical problems surrounding the recent $50 million Sinquefield “gift” (pledged in annual installments of $5 million over ten years). Please note that the slides include a plethora of embedded links.

Bottom line: In accepting the Sinquefield “gift,” SLU’s leadership has compromised the university’s ethical standards as well as the integrity of its academic research.
