Dr. Thomas Horan is a nationally recognized scholar and innovator who serves as dean the University of Redlands School of Business and can speak on the current Epstein Donation Scandal and the effect of failures in ethical and purposeful leadership at institutional levels. 

Speaking to the recently released report from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Horan says, "this report glosses over the most personal ethical leadership violation, that of Director Joichi Ito, who reportedly received $1M+ contribution into his 'personal' investment fund which has previously been reported and documented. If this is true, it is a classic case of conflict of interest and possibly bribery, but is not addressed (confirmed or dismissed), which makes is omission all the more suspect."
