Rutgers Says Kean to Speak at Commencement, Replacing Rice

Former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean will deliver Rutgers University’s commencement address later this month, replacing Condoleezza Rice, who backed out after student opposition.

Kean, governor from 1982 until 1990, and a former president of Drew University, will speak at the graduation ceremonies on May 18, Rutgers President Robert Barchi said today in a statement.
