Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will become a professor focusing on international affairs at Columbia University, the school announced Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Clinton is joining the university as a professor of practice at the School of International and Public Affairs and as a presidential fellow at Columbia World Projects, said Columbia president Lee Bollinger.

Bollinger noted Clinton’s long experience in public service as a secretary of state, a US senator and as a first lady, as well as her two presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016.

“Given her extraordinary talents and capacities together with her singular life experiences, Hillary Clinton is unique, and, most importantly, exceptional in what she can bring to the University’s missions of research and teaching, along with public service and engagement for the public good,” Bollinger wrote, according to AP.

Clinton said in a statement that she was looking forward to helping Columbia educate the “next generation of US and global policy leaders” and to helping the university address pressing global issues.

Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, has continued to criticize Trump during his presidency as well as afterwards.

In one incident, she warned that Trump “is a clear and present danger to America” and said she is "convinced" that his associates worked secretly with Russia to defeat her bid for presidency.

Previously, Clinton ripped Trump over his decision not to recertify the nuclear deal with Iran, saying his threat to pull out of the accord is "dangerous" and suggesting he is undermining the validity of the United States' promises to other nations.

The former Secretary of State has also warned that a victory by Trump in 2024 "could be the end" of US democracy.
