Mariah Cain, Staff Writer

The faculty of Morehouse College voted in favor of bestowing President Joe Biden with an honorary doctorate during its upcoming commencement ceremony. The motion passed in a 50-38 vote. 

Morehouse students have voiced their opposition to their school’s decision to honor Biden due to his support of Israel. Morehouse’s president, David Thomas, sent a message to students, “We will not — on Morehouse’s campus — create a national media moment where our inability to manage these tensions leads to people being taken out of a Morehouse ceremony in zip ties by law enforcement.”
