Vice President Joseph R. Biden will speak at the May 17 commencement of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice, according to this article in Penn Current.

Smaller schools within the University of Pennsylvania system rarely get such high-level speakers but the School of Social Policy and Practice had an edge this  year, the article said. Biden’s daughter, Ashley, is graduating with a master’s of social work.

“Vice President Biden has long supported policy and legislation aimed at social change,” Dean Richard J. Gelles said.  “We are pleased that he has accepted our invitation to be the Commencement speaker at the graduation exercises.”

UPDATE: Here is the link to a Philadelphia Inquirer article on Biden’s appearance at the commencement.
