How are universities complicit


Universities pursue different pathways to help to develop U.S. nuclear weapons. Some directly manage the laboratories that design nuclear weapons. Others partner with laboratories to recruit and train the next generation of weapons scientists. Still others use U.S. government funding to do basic research that is applied to nuclear weapons work. This report identifies four concrete categories of involvement: direct management, institutional partnerships, research programs and partnerships, and workforce development programs.
