Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice suggested Thursday that she will return to her faculty position at Stanford University once President George W. Bush leaves office in January.
Rice spoke to reporters after a visit to the Google campus in Mountain View with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband.
"I look forward to having an opportunity in the classroom again to discuss the dilemmas that we've faced, particularly since Sept. 11," Rice said, according to the Stanford Daily.
Rice resigned her campus post as provost to help advise Bush when he was gearing up to run in the 2000 election and then became his national security advisor after he was elected.
Rice came to Stanford in 1981 as a political science professor and was later named provost, the second-highest-ranking university officer, by former Stanford President Gerhard Casper.
