Swansea University in Wales is renamingits law school after Hillary Clinton and will honor the two-time presidential candidate and former secretary of state with an honorary degree. Clinton is being honored for her "commitment to promoting the rights of families and children around the world," and will receive the degree on October 14
Swansea University is proud to announce that Hillary Rodham Clinton is to be conferred with an honorary doctorate at a ceremony at the University’s Bay Campus on Saturday 14 October.
The award is being made in recognition of her commitment to promoting the rights of families and children around the world, a commitment that is shared by Swansea University’s Observatory on the Human Rights of Children and Young People.
Additionally, there will be a ceremony unveiling a stone that will change the name of Swansea's law school from College of Law to the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law. Clinton is of partial Welsh heritage.
On Facebook, some Swansea students were less than thrilled about Clinton receiving these honors, and pointed out that she hasn't always had the best record on promoting human rights around the world.
I mean, Swansea University is free to do what it wants, but out of everyone in the world to name a law school after...they landed on Hillary Clinton?
