Students Rallied, Lost Eric Alva

University Professor Cancels Gay Veteran Visit

Assumption College president Francesco Cesareo made an ass of himself earlier this year. The educator killed a gay student group’s plan to bring gay veteran Eric Alva as a Veterans Day Speaker.

Cesareo, who joined the College this year, said Alva would be too political and told the students to drop their plot. Faculty cried foul this week, saying Alva didn’t need a contract and admonished Cesareo’s closed mind. They stop short, however, of actually doing anything about it:

Assumption College faculty members, by a vote of 45-33 this week, charged President Francesco Cesareo and his cabinet with violating policy when they refused to host a gay activist veteran as a Veterans Day speaker, but the faculty also voted not to pursue the issue.

That’s teaching the children well…
