Former Vice President Joe Biden just spent the past eight years in the Oval Office, but it looks like he’s not ready to retire any time soon. The American politician is expected to head University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C. where he will assume the title, “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor.”

His new position was announced Tuesday by the university. The center’s work will prioritize foreign policy, women’s rights and the environment, issues that he has worked on during his political career. Biden will also act as the founding chair of the University of Delaware’s Biden Institute – his alma mater.

“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 said in news release.

While Biden will hold the title “professor,” he is not scheduled to teach any classes, Biden’s spokesperson Kate Bedingfield told The Daily Pennsylvania. Regardless, the university’s administration believe that his presence will help students and generate opportunities.

“Joe Biden is one of the greatest statesmen of our times. In his distinguished career of service to our nation, he has demonstrated a unique capacity to bring people together across divides and to craft constructive responses to some of the toughest and most important policy challenges of our day,” Penn’s president Amy Gutmann said.

The University of Pennsylvania is considered an Ivy League school and holds several established alumni, including President Donald Trump. Biden’s granddaughter Naomi Biden and Trump’s daughter Tiffany Trump both graduated from the university in 2016. The former vice president was the commencement speaker for the college in 2013 and has previously spoken on campus for lectures on numerous occasions.
