Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced that he will head up a new think tank, the Schwarzenegger Institute for Public Policy, at the University of Southern California.
The "Terminator," who donated $20 million to get the program off the ground, says its mission is to explore "post-partisan" politics and global challenges.
"When you think back of everything I've done — body building, training people, writing about diet and food supplements and promoting movies and entertainment — I've always been interested in making sure other people can benefit from my experience," Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Los Angeles Times.
He added that the institute will focus on coming up solutions that transcend party lines:
"How do you negotiate when you have two parties, how do you bring the ideology of those two together to come up with something that is beneficial to all people and not get stuck on ideology."
