The Johns Hopkins University School of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, to the school’s Visiting Fellows program. A leader in the education reform movement, Dr. Levine has written extensively on the preparation of school leaders, teachers and education researchers. His work at Johns Hopkins will focus on these topics as well as the transformation of schools of education in the 21st century. Planned activities include initiating a series of national symposia on the transformation of schools of education, developing school leadership programs, and working with local districts to develop new approaches to teacher preparation programs organized around key constituencies.
“Dr. Levine has been outspoken in his call for reform of school of education programs and we welcome his perspective as we continually examine our efforts to provide the best preparation for our teachers and school leaders”, said David Andrews, dean of JHU’s School of Education. Dr. Levine has also served as president of the Teachers College at Columbia University and chair of the Institute for Educational Management and a senior lecturer at the Harvard School of Education. The recipient of 25 honorary degrees, he has received numerous honors including Carnegie, Guggenheim, and Rockefeller Fellowships.
