KQV/Trib Total Media Listener Poll Do you agree with Rutgers University's decision to stand by its invitation to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be this year's commencement speaker? <More Info>
Rutgers University professors and students are crying foul over the school's decision to invite former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to speak at this year's commencement. The Faculty Council passed a resolution calling on the university's board of governors to rescind its invitation to Rice because of her role in the Iraq War and the Bush Administration's policy of enhanced interrogation techniques such as waterboarding. The university says it will not rescind the invitation.
