My point isn't that no public money will be used. I stated technically you were correct. It is still publicly run. Public bodies are still accountable. If I bring in private money into a university it becomes the university money. You need to use the money according to university, state, and federal guidelines.
Will anything be done? Probably not. The university and therefore the state is still accountable for the use of public money from either govt or private sources. They are still accountable for the use of the money and for discrimination. What happed should bother all of us in an ideal world. Even private companies have some degree of accountability.
Maybe you missed this: The Iowa Board of Regents unanimously approved a $23.7 million project to construct a 15,000-seat arena on the northwest edge of campus. Money flowed in, including a $1 million donation from Roy J. Carver
. Fans called the arena “The House That Lute Built.”
The Iowa Board of Regents on Thursday approved a $89.9 million renovation to the stadium's north end zone, a three-year project designed to provide more comfort for fans in the form of wider aisles and benches, and more restrooms and concession stands.
Monies are approved by the board of regents.
The Board of Regents, State of Iowa
(commonly referred to as the Iowa Board of Regents
) is the 9-member governing body
overseeing the three public universities in the state of Iowa
: the University of Iowa
, Iowa State University
, and the University of Northern Iowa
. The board also serves the Iowa School for the Deaf
and the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School
, the state's two public special schools
The governor of Iowa
appoints regents to six-year terms, which are subject to Iowa Senate
confirmation by a two-thirds vote. Terms begin May 1 and end April 30.
The board has nine members. Under state law, one of the regents must be a student of one of the three public universities, and no more than five members can be of the same political affiliation or gender.
