Disappointingly, the Biden administration has failed to view foreign influence as a serious threat, freezing all investigations into whether institutions of higher education are being transparent and reporting foreign gifts and contracts,” said Chairman Owens.“Committee Republicans will use this hearing to highlight how foreign adversaries are abusing America’s academic system to steal sensitive intellectual property, limit free expression, control curriculum, and indoctrinate our students.”
