Richard Levin served as a professor of economics and management at Yale for almost two decades before becoming the 22nd president of Yale University in 1993, an office he held until 2013. After a remarkable tenure as president, in which he expanded Yale’s campus, renovated many of Yale’s aging facilities, and grew the endowment to over $20 billion, Levin became CEO of the popular online learning website Coursera, a position he held until June 2017. He holds a B.A. in History from Stanford, a Bachelor of Letters in Politics and Philosophy from Merton College, Oxford, and a PhD in Economics from Yale. He specializes in industrial research and development, intellectual property, and productivity in manufacturing.
