Hillary Clinton To Join Columbia University As Professor

Published on

Hillary Clinton will join Columbia University in February as a Professor of Practice at the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) and Presidential Fellow at Columbia Worlds Project (CWP).

According to an email sent by university president Lee Bollinger, Clinton will “work closely with Dean Keren Yarhi-Milo and other senior faculty and administrators on a variety of major initiatives, especially those focusing on global politics and policy and on supporting female leaders in those arenas.” She will also collaborate with CWP leadership “to support programming related to renewing democracy and advancing efforts for effective engagement of women and youth in this country and around the world.”

“I have had the great pleasure of knowing Hillary personally for three decades, since her early days as First Lady of the United States. Her public service has expanded since then, most notably in her remarkably successful tenure as United States Senator for the State of New York, in her impressive role as Secretary of State, and in her two historic and record-breaking presidential campaigns,” Bollinger wrote. “Given her extraordinary talents and capacities together with her singular life experiences, Hillary Clinton is unique, and, most importantly, exceptional in what she can bring to the University’s missions of research and teaching, along with public service and engagement for the public good.”

In addition, he stated that Clinton will “be bringing her capacities, experience, and wisdom to [the] institution” and that the campus will “benefit immeasurably from working with her in the months and years ahead.”

Clinton served as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2013, and she ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008 and 2016, losing to President Donald Trump in both instances. She got an honorary degree from Columbia University in 2022 and delivered a graduation address.
