“the University will not conduct business with individuals and organizations that directly support the creation and dissemination of science disinformation.”
This is essentially about climate change. The left is proclaiming that you can no longer disagree with them and if you do, you’re denying science.

Brown University president wants to cut ties with ‘science disinformation’ spreaders
The president of Brown University announced recently that she is looking into how to end relationships with “individuals and organizations that promote science disinformation.”
President Christina Paxson (pictured) announced on April 23 the review of gift and grant policies and “business ethics practices.” She has established two new committees to review the university’s practices as they relate to working with people and groups that potentially spread “science disinformation.”
She stated that “science disinformation is contrary to our mission of advancing knowledge and understanding” and as a result “the University will not conduct business with individuals and organizations that directly support the creation and dissemination of science disinformation.”
She defined this “as knowingly spreading false information with the intent to deceive or mislead.”
Paxson had previously “gave a tentative response” to the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on University Resources Management, according to the Brown Daily Herald.
The College Fix contacted President Paxson’s office twice in the past two weeks, and asked the names of specific companies that are problematic and comment on the proposals.
Scholars at Brown for Climate Action thanks president for taking action
The recommendations came from the Scholars at Brown for Climate Action group, which, along with the Advisory Committee on University Resources Management, has created proposals since at least November 2021.
“We applaud the President for her leadership and support her efforts to rein in the influence of disinformation at Brown!” SBCA stated on Friday in a news release.
