@SCIENTISTTRUMP’S FIVE-POINT PLAN FOR SCIENCE REFORM“
It’s Time To Drain The Swamp In our Funding System. That’s Why I’m Proposing A Package Of Reforms To Make Our Science Great Once Again.” – @ScientistTrump
First: I am going to re-institute a 5-year ban on all university administrators applying for federal grants for 5 years after they leave university administration. I am going to ask Congress to pass this ban into law so that it cannot be lifted by executive order.
Second: I am going to ask Universities to institute their own 5-year bans on applying for internal univeristy funds by former Deans and their staffs.
Third: I am going to expand the definition of “Administrator” so we close all the loopholes that former university officials use by labeling themselves coordinators and advisors when we all know they are Administrators.
Fourth: I am going to issue a lifetime ban against Provosts and Presidents lobbying for donations to university fundraising campaigns from foreign alumni.
Fifth: I am going to ask Congress to pass grant application reform that prevents registered foreign faculty from raising money from American funding agencies.
