Ed Haldeman, Chairman of the Board of Trustees: $5,000 to the Investment Company Institute Political Action Committee, a non-partisan PAC

Al Mulley, Chairman of the Presidential Search Committee: $500 to Barack Obama

TJ Rodgers, first “petition trustee” to be elected to the Board: $2,300 to Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican congressman representing Orange County, California

Barry Scherr, Provost: none on record

Carol Folt, Dean of the Faculty: none on record

Sylvia Spears, Acting Dean of the College: none on record

David Spalding, Vice President for Alumni Affiars: $500 to John Sununu, the former Republican Senator from New Hampshire defeated by Jeanne Shaheen
