About the speakers
As a U.S. senator from Delaware for 36 years, then as the 47th vice president of the United States, 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. He currently serves as founding chair of UD’s Biden Institute. His most recent book, Promise Me, Dad, will be released in November.
Kasich was sworn in as Ohio's 69th governor on Jan. 10, 2011. He is the author the recent book 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 UD’s Center for Political Communication. Lindsay Hoffman directs the annual series. National Agenda continues on Nov. 1 and 15; for more information, visit cpc.udel.edu/nationalagenda. National Agenda is made possible with support from the University of Delaware Office of the Provost.
