There’s more on Hillary Clinton’s mind these days than a possible presidential run in 2016.

The former secretary of state has been approached by a number of colleges and universities, including Harvard and her law school alma mater, Yale, to possibly accept a formal academic role, Politico reports.

The opportunities offered have ranged from becoming a faculty member to forming a program in Clinton’s name to re-naming the Baruch College public policy school after her.

New York University, where her daughter, Chelsea, has a title, has also been in touch with Clinton.

A role in academia could benefit Clinton no matter what her ultimate decision is regarding a White House run.

If she decides to stay out of the race, she could simply assume the role of an educator and begin the next phase of her career.

If, in fact, she does declare her candidacy, an academic platform would provide her with a serious and sedate backdrop for speeches and events, as opposed to the usual hotel ballroom or something sponsored by her family’s foundation.

Clinton adviser Maggie Williams has been engaging in the conversations and, according to one source, the discussions are in a “listening” phase right now.

“A number of academic institutions have reached out with ideas,” said spokesman Nick Merrill.

“We’re following up with each to discuss them.”
