NEW YORK TIMES CORRECTS FALSE INFORMATION ABOUT WRIGHT GRADUATE UNIVERSITY
IN RECENT ARTICLE FOCUSED ON U.S. EDUCATION SECRETARY BETSY DEVOS
On May 15, 2020, the Wright Graduate University for the Realization of Human Potential was mentioned in a New York Times article about government support for education institutions through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The story incorrectly reported that Wright had received $495,000 from the Department of Education.
To correct this misinformation, on May 15, 2020, Wright contacted the New York Times about factual mistakes in the story:
In an unusually quick reversal, the New York Times issued the following correction: “An earlier version of this article misstated that a school received funding from the Education Department. The Wright Graduate University for the Realization of Human Potential was allocated about $495,000, but it did not claim it.”
Wright supports the truth and responsible journalism. We will make all efforts to set the record straight in this article and future reporting on our accredited university with its philosophy of academic and leadership excellence.
We encourage other media outlets that picked up the New York Times story to share our commitment to the truth.
Barbara Burgess, COO and Chief Vision Realization Officer for the 501(c)3 non-profit corporation of which the university is a division, said, “Wright Graduate University will be independently evaluating the requirements for the available federal funds and will determine what is best for its students … students are emphatically our priority.”
To support Wright students and the general public through the challenges of COVID 19, Wright has been providing, for free since March, its library of educational videos and on-line non-credit courses on its WrightNow app. “We are committed to helping as many people as we can develop improved social and emotional intelligence skills during this trying time,” Burgess added.
