Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has been elected as chairman of the board of trustees of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, the center announced Wednesday.

Mr. Biden succeeds former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in the volunteer post. Previous chairs of the private, nonprofit museum include former presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

Mr. Biden called the center “a national treasure.”

“The National Constitution Center’s mission to teach all Americans about the great document of human freedom that unites us has never been more timely, urgently needed, and inspiring,” he said in a statement.

NCC President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen said Mr. Biden’s “love for the Constitution, and passion for teaching all Americans about its enduring principles, have inspired people around the world.”

“From his service in the Senate to his time in the White House, Vice President Biden has devoted himself to educating all Americans about the founding principles of the Constitution and their timeless relevance today,” Mr. Rosen said.
