9780300100013: The Work of the University

This engaging collection of speeches and essays, published on the occasion of Richard C. Levin’s tenth anniversary as president of Yale University, reflects both the range of his intellectual passions and the depth of his insight into the work of the university. By turns analytical, reflective, and exhortatory, Levin explores what it means to be a world-class university, how the university intersects with local and global communities, and why a liberal education matters. He offers personal recollections of schools, teachers, and traditions of particular importance in his own life. And, returning to his roots as a professor of economics, he discusses the competitiveness of American industry and the relations between the market economy and American democracy.

Throughout these writings Levin illuminates and inspires. Always his affection for the university shines through. Whether greeting incoming freshmen, meditating on September 11, remembering an intellectual hero, saluting graduating seniors, addressing the League of Women Voters, or celebrating Yale’s Tercentennial, Levin, by example, shows what a liberal education can achieve.

Before becoming president, he chaired the economics department and served as dean of the Graduate School.

Review:

"To understand fully what our values mean, we must also test what it means to live by them."

"We must help our society become what we aspire to be inside our walls--a place where human potential can be fully realized."

From the vantage point of the president's office, an inspiring view of the challenges and responsibilities of a great university
