Presidential Think-Tank almost Banned from SMU Campus

March 9, 2007

The faculty senate of Southern Methodist University came up with a tie vote on whether the school should disassociate itself from a partisan think-tank that comes part-and-parcel with the proposed George W. Bush Presidential Library.  Most of the controversy over the library is regarding the partnered policy institute. If the motion had passed, SMU would have either voted to disassociate entirely from the project -- to the point of not allowing it on campus -- or only approving a non-partisan facility.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required) | The Dallas Morning News
