Students, faculty to protest Bush award in Denver

 



DENVER (AP) - Students, faculty and alumni at the University of Denver plan to protest when the university's international studies school presents an award to former president George W. Bush.

Bush will be recognized Monday at a fundraising dinner in Denver both for his service as president as well as efforts to fight HIV, cervical cancer and malaria in Africa. The Josef Korbel School's decision has outraged many at the school who fault the 43rd president for starting the war in Iraq and allowing the use of torture on prisoners.

University spokeswoman Kim DeVigil says the university is honored that a two-term president is visiting and says a university should be a place where civil discourse from all different views should be presented.
