The White House said in a statement Monday that “no decisions have been finalized” for President Obama after his second term as President has ended, according to Politico.
The statement was released after rumors circulated Monday that the President would return in 2017 to his alma mater, Columbia University.
Columbia President Lee Bollinger reportedly told students Monday that the Obama would return, but did not elaborate on what his role on campus would be, according to a student newspaper at Columbia.
But, the White House said nothing was finalized late Monday.
“The President has long talked about his respect for Columbia University and his desire to continue working with them,” White House spokeswoman Jen Friedman said in a statement to Politico. “However, at this point no decisions have been finalized about his post-Presidency plans.”
