BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Protesters disappointed that Florida Atlantic University partnered with the GEO Group for naming rights of the university's football stadium gathered Monday morning at the school.
FAU's board of trustees approved a deal that involves the school receiving $6 million over the next twelve years.
The for-profit prison company is based in Boca Raton, and is run by an FAU graduate. It has locations in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.
According to FAU, this is the largest one-time gift the university's athletics program has ever received.
Protesters say they're against the deal because of the prison group's history with abuse investigations...
