(Reuters) - Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher made no reference to the economic outlook or monetary policy in remarks prepared for delivery to graduates of Bryant University in Smithfield, R.I. on Saturday.

Fisher, who votes on Fed policy this year, is next expected to speak on policy on May 19 at a conference on monetary policy at the Bush Institute in Dallas, where he is to appear on a panel with San Francisco Fed President John Williams.
