Columbia Educator Chosen to Lead Wilson Foundation
Arthur E. Levine, president of Teachers College at Columbia University, will become president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation in Princeton, N.J., next summer, the foundation announced yesterday.
Dr. Levine, who recently conducted a highly critical study of the performance of education schools nationally, said he hoped to make the new Woodrow Wilson fellowships as prestigious as Rhodes scholarships.
Dr. Levine, 57, has been president of Teachers College, one of the most prestigious schools of education, since 1994; he announced in September that he planned to step down at the end of the academic year.
