President Joe Biden will visit the University of Connecticut and Hartford Friday, according to the White House. In Hartford, Biden will promote his Build Back Better Agenda and the importance of investing in child care to help working class families, the White House said. He will then travel to Storrs to dedicate the opening of the Dodd Center for Human Rights with former U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd. "We are deeply honored that President Biden is joining us as we dedicate ourselves to extending the Dodd family legacy," UConn President Andrew Agwunobi said. According to UConn, the Dodd Center for Human Rights will be the umbrella for the university's human rights programs, including The Human Rights Institute and Dodd Impact. It had previously been named after Dodd's father, former U.S. Sen. Thomas Dodd. "UConn is honoring over a half-century of public service of Connecticut's father and son U.S. senators, Thomas J. Dodd and Christopher J. Dodd, as well as the commitment of the Dodd family to supporting the growth and development of UConn's widely recognized human rights academic, research, and engagement programs," Agwunobi said. Gov Lamont, after an unrelated event in Southington on Tuesday morning, said he will be talking with the president about child care and infrastructure funding that is bogged-down in Congress, before traveling to UConn for the dedication of the Dodd Center for Human Rights. "I am really happy that President Biden is coming back to Connecticut," Lamont told reporters. "He's going to come and we're going to do something in a child care facility in the Hartford area, and then go out to the Dodd Center at UConn. So he's going to spend a fair amount of time here."
