University fundraising and industry sponsorships — critical revenue sources for universities — are in the throes of a public relations crisis.

Think Sackler. Think Epstein. Think Saudi Arabia, China, tobacco, or oil. While contributions from these funding sources – and others who may have fallen from grace, are associated with controversy, or perhaps have ties to companies or countries with questionable motives – might once have been welcomed with open arms, they have now put many organizations under tight scrutiny. These linkages, once revealed, give rise to uncomfortable questions from the media, legislators, student and faculty groups, and other key stakeholders: Who knew what, and when? What policies and procedures could have averted the problem? What sort of vetting and approval was done prior to accepting these funds – and what should be changed going forward?

Tech Transfer Central, in partnership with University-Industry Engagement Advisor, brings you this critically important webinar that will shed light on the elements you need in place to prevent a crisis in controversy before it even happens:
