Michigan State Students Stage Sit-In to Protest Will as Speaker

Updated on

Michigan State University students staged a sit-in to protest a decision to keep George Will as a Dec. 13 commencement speaker after he wrote a column disparaging victims of campus sexual assault.

About 30 protestors gathered in the administration building and delivered a petition calling for Will’s invitation to be rescinded, said Jason Cody, a spokesman for the university in East Lansing.
