Clinton, 42nd President of the United States and the founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation, has been named Honorary Chancellor of the Laureate International Universities network (http://www.uic.ac.ma/president-bill-clinton), the world's largest provider of private universities (Article in French).

The announcement was made by IUC, a member of the network, which noted that former President Clinton will advise the students regarding social responsibility, promotion of youth leadership, and increasing access to higher education.

"I have had the opportunity to visit several Laureate universities and to speak to students, faculty, and the communities that they serve," said President Clinton. "These private universities exemplify the same principles of innovation and social responsibility in education that we worked to advance during my Presidency and now through my Foundation, and I am pleased to support their mission to expand access to higher education, particularly in the developing world."
