UB Won't Release Info. on Fee for Clinton Speech

BUFFALO, NY- University at Buffalo was one of several schools where Hillary Clinton gave a speech over the past year.

The likely six-figure speaking fee each of these schools paid isn't sitting well with students facing rising tuition fees, according to a report in the Washington Post.

Two of the schools Clinton spoke at, the University of Connecticut and the University of California Los Angeles, paid approximately $250,000 and $300,000 for her speech respectively. Clinton is also set to make $225,000 for a speech in October at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

UB has not disclosed the amount Clinton was paid for her speech, saying in a statement, "Agreements with speakers are maintained by the University at Buffalo Foundation, a private non-profit organization. These agreements, including information about speaking fees, are not public information."

There are limited public documents regarding the UB Foundation. Those that exist however suggest that the UB Foundation has more than half a billion dollars in assets.

The UB Foundation is not required by law to disclose the amount paid for speaking engagements.
