Yale University is in New Haven, Connecticut. It may not have reported at least $375 million in foreign money over the last four years, officials said in a statement.
They are also concerned that Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, may not have fully met reporting requirements.
“This is about transparency,” U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said in a statement.
“If colleges and universities are accepting foreign money and gifts, their students, donors, and taxpayers deserve to know how much and from whom.” ■
