Former Vice President Joe Biden will visit Northwestern on Friday to speak about economic growth in the nation’s cities.

Biden will deliver the address, hosted by the Kellogg School of Management, on the “unequal economic growth across America’s cities and towns,” according to a news release.

Kellogg Prof. Ben Harris, who was Biden’s chief economist and economic adviser, helped organize the event, according to the release.

Since leaving office, Biden has continued work on supporting cancer research and has also started the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware.

The address will be held at the Kellogg Global Hub on Friday evening.

The speech will be a closed, ticketed event for the Kellogg community, Kellogg’s associate director of external communications Taryn Tawoda told The Daily in an email, but will be livestreamed for others who want to watch.
