Report: VP Mike Pence to give UC commencement address

There is a newswire report that the new free speech center created by UC prez Janet Napolitano has invited Vice President Mike Pence to give a commencement speech at one of the UC campuses this spring. According to the report, the arrangement was made at a Washington, DC dinner meeting between Pence and Napolitano (with Pence's "wife also in attendance in deference to the Vice President's practice").

Apparently, since any such speech would likely provoke protests, the particular campus will not be announced until shortly before the event. There is also a possibility that the speech would be delivered entirely online out of security concerns, and - in part - because of "Gov. Brown's interest in promoting online higher education."
