Hillary Clinton to be Columbia University professor at Columbia University

The former U.S. Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will join the faculty at Columbia University next month, Columbia University officials announced on Thursday.

Clinton will be an instructor of the School of International and Public Affairs SIPA, also known as SIPA as well as a president’s Fellow with Columbia World Projects, as originally reported by the college publication The Columbia Spectator.

“Given her exceptional capabilities and talents, as well as her life-long experiences that are unique, Hillary Clinton is unique and, more importantly remarkable in the way she contributes to the university’s goals of teaching and research in addition to engagement and public service to improve the lives of others,” wrote University President Lee Bollinger in an email to faculty and students.

Clinton will be involved in initiatives with SIPA that are related to global politics and policies as well as female leaders in those fields as per the announcement. As fellows, she’s expected to help support programs that relate to preserving democracy and engaging young and female voters across the globe.

Her duties will be expanded to include the classroom from the school year 2023-24.

“I feel honored and privileged to be a part of Columbia University, and the School of International and Public Affairs as well as Columbia World Projects,” Clinton said Clinton in an official statement. “Columbia’s dedication to training the future generations of U.S. and global policy leaders, translating their knowledge into action and assisting in addressing the world’s biggest challenges resonates with me personally. I am looking forward to participating in the initiatives.”

In the presidential election of 2016, Clinton won the popular vote, but she lost her White House to Donald Trump.

The next calendar year Clinton had been a professor of law, and was believed to be engaged with Columbia to accept the professorship as according to the Daily News reported.

Clinton received an honorary diploma from Ivy this spring. She also gave impromptu speeches at the ceremony of graduation.
