Washington University statement on presidential debate

Our responsibility as host is to provide a neutral space for the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) to hold its debate and for the American people to see the two leading candidates together on the same stage, addressing the issues on the minds of voters. It would be inappropriate to comment any further.

Months of planning and hard work, all across the university, have gone into creating an exceptional debate experience and venue. We are proud of the effort and are ready to welcome the world to Washington University.
