Contributions from Higher Ed to the Presidential Candidates
These are the contributions from higher educational institutions and individuals employed by them to the presidential candidates up to October 31, 2015. The totals include contributions from public and private, as well as non-profit and for-profit, institutions. Typically, for-profit institutions have been among the “industries” that have spent the most on lobbying, but thus far in this presidential cycle, the contributions from those individuals have been proportionate to their size.
