How much was Danny Glover paid to come to Lawrence, and who paid for the expenses?

The Student Senate at Kansas University paid the actor's speaking fee, travel costs and expenses while he was in Lawrence for an appearance at the Langston Hughes international symposium, according to Breeze Luetke-Stahlman, an off-campus student senator who was chairwoman of the senate's reserve account task force.
