“It is a great honor to have our 47th vice president visit the university,” said UNH President Mark Huddleston. “He has long been committed to the ideals of former New Hampshire Senator Warren Rudman and he has served the public good himself for decades.”

Rudman was widely admired for his integrity and willingness to work with politicians across the aisle in order to advance the public interest. He and Biden served together in the U.S. Senate from 1980 to 1993.

“Vice President Biden is a true leader in the area of public service and it was an honor to present him with this award,” said the executive director of the Rudman Center. “He epitomizes the values Rudman stood for and continues to work across the aisle.”

Former Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) received the first award in 2013.
