In an interview with The Chronicle of Higher Education, University of Baltimore President Kurt L. Schmoke talks about his reasons for inviting U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to deliver a keynote address at UB's Commencement this coming December.
"[H]aving her at our university is in the best interest of the University of Baltimore because I'm trying to convey to our students the message that they're graduating into a world in which not everyone agrees with, or has the same point of view on, every public policy issue that is before us," Schmoke said.
