Jeff Greenfield speaks at Commencement

Posted on Apr 26, 2002

Jeff Greenfield, political analyst, author, and
national news anchor will be honorary chancellor and deliver the
main address at the College's Commencement on Sunday, June 16,
at 10 a.m. in Library Plaza.

Greenfield is host of CNN's Greenfield At Large,
a roundtable program drawing on people from all walks of life to discuss
the public agenda.

Greenfield is also CNN's senior analyst for Inside
the nation's first program devoted exclusively to politics. In 2000,
he was a host of the network's nightly special election
program during the 37 days of the Florida recount, an experience
from which he penned the book, Oh Waiter! One Order of Crow!

Greenfield reported live for CNN from the 2000
Republican and Democratic conventions and served as a panelist in the
WCBS New York Senate debate between Hilary Rodham Clinton and
Rep. Rick Lazio.

Greenfield writes a column for Time magazine. He
has contributed articles to The New York Times Magazine,
and National Lampoon. He has authored or co-authored
nine books, including Television: The First 50
and The Real Campaign. His first novel,
The People's Choice, was published in 1995 and was named one of
The New York Times' notable books of the year. Director Penny
Marshall has purchased the motion picture rights to this political satire.

Greenfield has garnered a number of awards,
including three Emmys for his contributions to Nightline's
South Africa specials in 1985 and 1990, and
for a 1992 prime time special on Ross Perot.

He has a bachelor's degree with honors from the
University of Wisconsin, and a bachelor of legal letters, also with
honors, from Yale Law School.
