Pence To Teach At Conservative College

Former Vice President Mike Pence announced this week that he would be teaching courses at a conservative college following his time in the White House alongside former President Donald Trump. The news came after a high-profile break with the former president, including Pence criticizing Trump’s recent stance on abortion.

Pence will teach at Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania.

“It was an honor to be on campus today and see President Paul McNulty and so many wonderful students!” he wrote.

The former vice president will be a Distinguished Visiting Fellow for Faith & Public Life at the Christian school’s Center for Faith & Public Life.

Pence said that it was a “great honor” to serve in the position, calling the college a “pivotal institution in helping students grow in their faith and in understanding God’s calling for their life through a rigorous education and a faith-based community.”

The former vice president made headlines last month after announcing that he would not be supporting Trump for the White House this year. Pence cited a number of issues that he differed with Trump on, including abortion.

Pence described Trump’s recent statement that abortion should be decided by individual states as a “retreat on the Right to Life” and a “slap in the face to the millions of pro-life Americans who voted for him in 2016 and 2020.”

He said that “too many Republican politicians are all too ready to wash their hands of the battle for life” and that the GOP wins on issues related to abortion “when we speak the truth boldly and stand on the principle that we all know to be true – human life begins at conception and should be defended from womb to tomb.”

“However much our Republican nominee or other candidates seek to marginalize the cause of life, I know pro-life Americans will never relent until we see the sanctity of life restored to the center of American law in every state in this country,” wrote Pence.

Teaching at colleges is not uncommon for those in politics or retired from political positions. However, the news followed Pence’s unsuccessful run for the White House last year, which ended before January 2024’s Iowa caucuses.
