“As a public university, UC is obligated by law to rent space on campus to external people no matter who they are,” Father Michael Graham, president, said. “They couldn’t have done anything to prevent it. “In a perfect world, someone like Richard Spencer would not exist,” Graham said. Some universities are, however, not allowing Spencer to speak on campus, and they are being met with legal challenges. Spencer’s upcoming UC visit has caused distress in Xavier’s community, too.
