Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will collect a $225,000 speaking fee from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in October, it emerged on Tuesday.

The massive expense was confirmed just weeks after the university formalized a 4 per cent tuition increase for each of the next four years. Rate hikes have nearly tripled tuition costs there since 2004.

Clinton will deliver the keynote address at an invitation-only gala for philanthropists and other high-dollar donors who support UNLV. The university said private funds are being tapped to pay her speaking fee.

But students see a zero-sum financial gain in which that money could have chipped away at tuition increases.

  1. I sincerely hope those college students see how absurd this is.

  2. It is nice to see facebook talking about this topic. I think many people are seeing her as out of touch with America. Why she even mentioned her finances to begin with is beyond me. She should have known it would backfire in her face.
