Topic - Christopher Kennedy
While a campus committee weighs whether former 1970s radical James Kilgore should work at the University of Illinois, the chairman of the board that oversees the university believes the instructor's violent past should rule him out.
University of Illinois Board of Trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy and President Robert Easter say derogatory remarks directed by some Urbana-Champaign students at Chancellor Phyllis Wise were disgraceful.
Christopher Kennedy will serve a sixth year as chairman of the University of Illinois board of trustees.
"I think it's important to continue to defend where we're coming from," Kennedy said.
On Wednesday Christopher Kennedy said Kilgore's situation is in the hands of the committee and campus administrators in Urbana-Champaign, but thanked Fitzgerald for his comment.
