So, a bunch of students didn’t like the fact that Condoleeza Rice was invited to speak at the Rutgers commencement. Seems that she is a war criminal. According to AP, “….several faculty members and students want the invitation rescinded because of Rice’s role in the Iraq War.”  So, did Rutgers pull a Brandeis? No way.  “University President Robert Barchi and other school leaders have resisted the calls to ‘disinvite’ Rice, saying the university welcomes open discourse on controversial topics.” If you are looking at the key word in that sentence, it is “leaders.”
