In February 2018 the Utah State University Faculty Senate voted to examine a $50 million donation from the Charles Koch Foundation. A task force was created for that responsibility and later recommended a resolution for the senate’s consideration.
After an extended discussion Monday afternoon during its monthly meeting, the senate voted to table the discussion on the resolution. Sociology Professor Steve Daniels said more time and more information were needed.
Monday’s senate session did not include a scheduled vote on the resolution which then would have been submitted to USU President Noelle Cockett.
Senate President Becki Lawver said carrying the issue over to the April meeting gives the task force more time.
USU received the Huntsman-Koch gift in May, 2017.
