Only one that I'm familiar with but it was one of the big 3, along with Columbia Teachers College and Stanford, about 15 years ago, and "for cause". The University had repeatedly warned it that its "research" was tainting the illustrious University in spite of its being a huge "cash cow" - you probably know about "overhead" associated with grants? They bought Stanford a lovely huge yacht.
However, I do wish you'd pick up that mirror and take your own advice.
