Nothing it seems will stop the University of Wollongong from progressing with its controversial new Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation degree.
Even the latest revelations the Ramsay Foundation is in talks to sever ties with the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported today directors of the two boards were at odds over how much of Paul Ramsay's $3.5 billion fortune should be given to the centre, and whether it should keep the Ramsay name.
This comes just weeks after the centre was not mentioned in the $3.5 billion will of the late Paul Ramsay.
And in April the National Tertiary Education Union took "unprecedented" legal action against UOW and Vice-Chancellor Paul Wellings over their fast-track approval of the Ramsay Centre-funded degree.
But UOW reiterated to the Mercury today it was progressing with the controversial degree.
"The University of Wollongong is not concerned by speculation published in the Sydney Morning Herald today," a UOW spokesman said.
"The Memorandum of Understanding publicly released on 12 February 2019, is a tripartite agreement signed by: the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation, the University of Wollongong and the Ramsay Foundation.
"This MoU clearly indicates the shared intention of all three organisations."
SMH sources said some of Mr Ramsay's closest friends, including Ramsay Health Care chairman Michael Siddle, were upset by the culture war that has raged over the centre's attempts to fund courses in western civilisation at three universities.
The foundation's directors also expressed concerns over devoting hundreds of millions to university degrees that will benefit a relatively small number of students.
Several high-profile business leaders and politicians are involved, including the centre's chair, former prime minister John Howard, and prominent director Kathryn Greiner, who sits on the board of the foundation, which funds the centre.
At present, the foundation's board approves expenditure for the centre.
The Ramsay Centre-funded courses will allow tutorials of about eight students to study the important works of the western canon. About 30 students in each cohort will have their living expenses covered by scholarships of up to $30,000 a year.
