Join Joe Biden and John Kasich for a conversation on divides facing the nation. In partnership with the Biden Institute, the Center for Political Communication presents a special National Agenda “As We Stand | Divided” program featuring the former Vice President and Gov. Kasich of Ohio. They will discuss how to bridge the many political and partisan divides that exist in Washington, DC, today.
As a U.S. senator from Delaware for 36 years, then as the 47th Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden provided leadership on some of the nation's most important domestic and international challenges. In January 2017, President Barack Obama awarded Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom, with Distinction, the highest civilian honor in the United States. Biden's most recent book, Promise Me, Dad, will be released in November 2017.
John Kasich was sworn in as Ohio's 69th governor on January 10, 2011. He is the author of most recently, Two Paths: America United or Divided, which reflects on his 2016 presidential campaign and hopes for America's future. As Governor, Kasich has said his top priorities are to create jobs for Ohioans, reduce taxes, and cut government spending.
The National Agenda “As We Stand | Divided” speaker series is hosted by the Center for Political Communication. Dr. Lindsay Hoffman directs the annual series. National Agenda continues on November 1 and 15; please visit nationalagenda.udel.edu for more information. National Agenda is made possible with support from the University of Delaware Office of the Provost.
