Stabenow Statement on Michigan State University Decision to Honor George Will at Commencement

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today issued the following statement in regard to Michigan State University's (MSU) decision to select George Will as one of the University's December 2014 Commencement Speakers and to present him with an honorary doctorate:

"As a Michigan State alumna, I am deeply disappointed that George Will is being honored this weekend. His statements on sexual assault are inaccurate, offensive, and don't represent the values of our state or MSU. I urge the University to continue their efforts to combat campus sexual assault, including the recent convening of the University Task Force on Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence."
