Just hours before Carnegie Mellon University officials and the President of Rwanda formally announced plans to open a new branch of the university inside the East African country, roughly 40 human-rights activists gathered on campus today to denounce the move, calling President Paul Kagame a "dictator" and "war criminal." In a Sept. 15 press release, CMU announced plans to open a branch of the school in Rwanda's capital, Kigali, next year, offering graduate-level engineering programs.
