The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Endowed Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut says it was really about the prestige, not the money.
Chamberlain declined to say what she wants to see the University of Connecticut do with its Sackler grants. “On the one hand, at least they did something good with their money. On the other hand, should a dirty name be associated with your university? If the money’s given back, do they owe that money to somebody else who needs it more? That’s way above my pay grade.”
