Biden Elected Chair of Nonpartisan National Constitution Center
Joe Biden will become the Chairman of the National Constitution Center. The Center’s goal is to promote education regarding the US Constitution to the American people.
The Hill reports:
Former Vice President Joe Biden will chair the board of trustees of the National Constitution Center, a nonpartisan museum focused on educating and informing the American people about the Constitution.
The center announced early Wednesday that the board elected Biden to succeed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as chair. Bush’s term ended in January of this year.
The nonpartisan group has been chaired by Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush in the past.
“I am honored to chair the National Constitution Center and to succeed Governor Jeb Bush, President Bill Clinton, and President George H.W. Bush at the head of this national treasure,” Biden said in a statement.
“The National Constitution Center’s mission to teach all Americans about the great document of human freedom that unites us has never been more timely, urgently needed, and inspiring.”
Biden is planning a busy post-White House life. He is leading the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania and will serve as the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor at the school.
Biden is also spearheading the Biden Institute based at the University of Delaware, a research and policy center focused on creating public policy solutions, economic reform and civil rights, among other issues.
On Feb. 1, Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, announced they are also launching the Biden Foundation, a charitable foundation focused on cancer research, preventing sexual assault on college campuses and supporting education at community colleges.
