Joe Biden served in the United States Senate for 36 years, representing Delaware. Before serving as the 47th Vice President of the United States from 2009 to 2017, he was a member of the Senate. Joe Biden, as Vice President, addressed critical national issues and represented the United States abroad, traveling over 1.2 million miles to more than 50 nations.

With the establishment of the Biden Foundation, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Biden Domestic Policy Institute at the University of Delaware, Vice President Biden has continued his legacy of expanding opportunity for all.
