SOUTH BEND — Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday delivered a call for leadership to the University of Notre Dame’s newest graduates, urging them “to be men and women of integrity and values” and to stand up against the suppression of free speech.

“Notre Dame is a campus where deliberation is welcomed, where opposing views are debated, and where every speaker, no matter how unpopular or unfashionable, is afforded the right to air their views in the open for all to hear,” Pence told students at the commencement ceremony.

But about 150 people, about half students and the other half family members, didn’t stay to hear the message.

As they promised last week, they staged a walk-out as Pence took the stage, quietly lining out of Notre Dame Stadium. Some boos came from the audience as the students began to leave the field.
