Due to recent violent protests against right-wing free speaker at the UC Berkeley, many main donors and even the President reacted as they suggest to withdraw funding and other support for the college.
The President’s threat may be unprecedented, and raises many questions if – and how – he could follow through with it.
But, today, one of UC Berkeley’s main donors, Scott Adams, has chosen to withdraw his funding and other support for the college.

Here’s his statement:
I’m ending my support of UC Berkeley, where I got my MBA years ago. I have been a big supporter lately, with both my time and money, but that ends today. I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on the campus. A Berkeley professor made that clear to me recently. He seems smart, so I’ll take his word for it.
This comes as a good move by one of the most famous donors, who is also creator of Dilbert and co-founder of the WhenHub. Maybe this move will be just a beginning for big reforms that will come to Berkeley. Scott’s act will surely stimulate many other donors to make the right decision, no one should give a dime to any collage that allows their students to behave this way.
