1/ 25iQuiz: Assume a university has an endowment with a value of tens of billions of dollars.

Might taking in < $10M in aid from the US government through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act result in a reduction in donations to that university > that amount.

2/ What Harvard law graduate said:

"We don’t claim to have perfect morals, but at least we have a huge area of things that, while legal, are beneath us. We won’t do them. Currently, there’s a culture in America that says that anything that won’t send you to prison is OK.”

3/ Is it possible that a group of alumni who have contributed to the university in past might might write a joint letter to the university stating that this behavior was not what they intended or expect? It seems quite possible to me.
