Rutgers vs. Rice

Jennifer Kabbany of the College Fix:

Rutgers University professors and students have decried the selection of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as commencement speaker and honorary doctorate recipient.

A faculty resolution recently passed at the New Jersey-based public institution says Rice condoned torture, such as waterboarding, and misled Americans about the reasons for invading Iraq; while the student newspaper The Daily Targum published a staff editorial calling the choice questionable and inappropriate.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
