Stanford University announced the appointment of Jonathan Levin, an alum of the Fulbright Program, as its next president.

According to the Stanford Report, Levin will become president effective August 1, 2024. Jerry Yan, the chair of Stanford’s Board of Trustees, said Levin was selected because of his “impressive track record of academic and leadership success, the analytical prowess to tackle complex strategic issues, and a collaborative and optimistic working style.” Levin is currently a professor and dean at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business; under his leadership, the school has grown through an emphasis on technology and sustainability.

Levin started his academic career as an undergraduate student at Stanford. Through the Fulbright Program, he pursued graduate-level study in economics at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, where he eventually earned his master’s degree. Levin continued researching economics for his doctorate and maintains an active research agenda in microeconomics and industrial organization. Levin says his career “has given me opportunities to pursue ideas in collaboration with brilliant colleagues, teach exceptional students, and bring people together to achieve ambitious collective goals around the university.”
