FORA.tv Speaker - Richard Levin
Professor Levin assumed the Yale presidency in 1993. He is the longest serving Ivy League president and widely considered a leader of American higher education.
One of his priorities has been the internationalization of the university with particular emphasis on China. Yale was chosen to sponsor two programs in China, one for presidents of China's leading universities, and another for senior Chinese government officials to study outside the country.
A distinguished economist, President Levin was previously Chair of Yale's Economics Department, and holds honorary degrees awarded by Peking, Harvard, Princeton and Oxford Universities as well as an honorary professorship from Fudan University. He has also served on Presidential Commissions reviewing the U.S. Postal Service and the effectiveness of U.S. intelligence operations.
