Rescind General Pace's invitation sign now

As students of the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business we are extremely disappointed by the GSB's invitation to General Peter Pace to speak at the upcoming 55th Annual Management Conference. General Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has labeled gay behavior immoral and equated homosexuality to adultery. He has used his private moral beliefs to justify discrimination and disrespect to other human beings. Despite widespread outrage over his comments, Pace has refused to apologize for his remarks.





We feel it is our responsibility to uphold the dignity of every human being, and to live by the values which we hold dear. We also believe that we must hold the institutions in which we participate accountable for their actions. It is our firm conviction that the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business by refusing to rescind General Pace's invitation has failed to live up to the values it purports to uphold.





As ethical individuals we cannot support nor condone this decision by the administration of the University of Chicago GSB, and therefore we pledge that unless General Pace's invitation is rescinded we will withhold all contributions to the Class Gift of 2007/2008. We take this action in the sincere hope that GSB administration carefully re-consider its decision in this matter.





We are grateful for the incredible opportunities this institution has offered us. We share with the entire GSB community the common purpose of strengthening the GSB. However we must all remember that the foundation of leadership, excellence and achievement is a deep commitment to the value, dignity and worth of the individual.
