(AP) Humboldt State University in California has invited Jimmy Kimmel to deliver the school's commencement address after he joked about its marijuana research program.


The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! devoted three minutes of his late-night show in November to poking fun at the new program.


Kimmel's faux recruiting commercial said students could look forward to low-pressure careers such as dog walking, organizing drum circles and occupying Wall Street.


University spokesman Jarad Petroske said Thursday the school has not heard from Kimmel. The comedian's publicist Alyssa Wilkins did not reply to an email from The Associated Press seeking a response.


Humboldt State President Rollin Richmond and student body president Ellyn Henderson revealed they sent Kimmel a letter last month saying they found parts of the skit funny but thought it unfairly portrayed the campus community as a bunch of pot-obsessed slackers.
