Can you believe it? Biden has found a great job 18 days after being jobless. This is a route unique from other government officials: Joe Biden is going to be a professor at University of Pennsylvania. President Amy Gutmann announced today that Biden’s title will be Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor and that he will head the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, reports The Daily Pennsylvanian. He won’t be teaching classes, instead focusing on policy research, Biden’s spokesperson told the campus newspaper.
He wants to focus on keeping and protecting the post-WWII international order to keep America strong. “The Penn Biden Center and I will be engaging with Penn’s wonderful students while partnering with its eminent faculty and global centers to convene world leaders, develop and advance smart policy, and impact the national debate about how America can continue to lead in the 21st century.”
Biden is following in former President Barack Obama’s footsteps: before his time in office, Obama was a constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago. He is also interested in attempting a fourth run for President in 2020.
