Former United States vice president Joe Biden soon will begin working for both the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Delaware, heading a new centre and institute that will address foreign policy, the environment, women's rights and other issues important to the former vice president, writes Susan Snyder for Philly.com.
Both appointments are in addition to a new foundation that Biden and his wife, Jill, recently started to work on, on a variety of issues they championed during his vice presidency, including foreign policy, cancer research, community colleges and military families, the protection of children, equality, the ending of violence against women, and the strengthening of the middle class.
At the University of Pennsylvania, he will lead a new centre on diplomacy, foreign policy and national security, which will be based in Washington and will open later this year. At Delaware, his alma mater, Biden will chair a new institute focused “on developing public policy solutions on issues ranging from economic reform and environmental sustainability to civil rights, criminal justice, women’s rights and more”, according to university press releases.
