College Professors, Administrators Heavily Invested in Midterm Political Elections
WASHINGTON - September 22 - Geriatric medicine. Woodworking. Business. Psychology.
Educators may have varied academic interests, but some of the most politically active share one thing in common: the habit of donating huge sums of money to federal candidates, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal campaign records indicates.

Contributions from the education sector this election cycle have come from across the country, and from employees of non-profit and for-profit educational institutions both. The donations largely benefit Democrats. And for some students, the partisan leanings of their professors are sources of curiosity -- something, they say, that could even affect the way they learn.
