Vice President Joe Biden tells University of Delaware graduates they're stepping into a rapidly changing world that presents profound dangers and challenges as well as incredible opportunities.

Biden made his comments in a commencement speech Saturday, adding that the world is at a critical point, just as it was when he graduated from the university in the 1960s.

Biden says the threats the world faces include international terrorism, pandemic disease, climate change and global inequity.

But he said Americans have always risen to challenges, and the newly minted graduates have both the tools and the education they need to shape the world they live in.

Biden graduated from the university in 1965 with a double major in history and political science. His senatorial papers are housed there.
