Welcome to the Biden Institute Blog,
Here you'll find perspectives from Vice President Biden, Biden Institute staff, the UD community, and guest experts on the biggest issues of the day. We'll be looking at the issues of economic inequality and opportunity, social justice, civil rights, human rights, the environment, climate change, violence against women, civic engagement, political and democratic reform—and much more; all of the issues that long animated Vice President Biden's career.
We'll have a special focus on one of the Vice President's core commitments: the middle class—and those striving to be in the middle class. That's why we kicked off the Biden Lecture series last spring with a discussion on how a shift to long-term thinking in the business community wouldn't only be better for business—it would also make a big difference in growing the middle class in this country again. And that's also we're beginning this fall with a discussion titled, "Choosing a Future of Quality Jobs."
In addition to an exploration of the issues, the Vice President is hoping that the work of the Institute will inspire young people to get engaged not only in the public debate, but in public service too. As the Vice President has said, it was mentors here at the University of Delaware who convinced him he could make a difference. Our hope is that there are students here today who will be given the confidence to believe they can make a difference as well.
As the Biden Institute, we have a lot to live up to. Because for more than 40 years, Joe Biden set a standard of honesty, integrity, courage, and compassion that has been met by few others in public life.
Our goal is to drive the conversation. This will be a forum for the work of the Biden Institute and a home to a real debate on the issues.
We want to hear from you.
I hope you will join us by checking back and getting involved. There's lots of work to do.
