As a scholar, author and public speaker, Levine is a major presence in the field of higher education. Most recently, he served as president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation – a foundation aimed at identifying and developing leaders and institutions to meet the nation’s critical challenges – after a long term as president and professor of education at Teachers College, Columbia University. Prior to his tenure at Teachers College, Levine served as chair of the higher education program and chair of the Institute for Educational Management at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Levine is teaching a course at Steinhardt titled Topics in Higher Education: The Future of Higher Education. The one-credit course will provide students with analyses, perspectives and contrasting views of the philosophy, history, mission, purpose, and role of higher education institutions in America’s diverse, contemporary society. It will go beyond the immediate issues facing higher education and focus on primary causes, examining three forces with the potential to transform higher education: demographics, the economy and the workforce, and technology.
