Stanford appoints Jonathan Levin, dean of the business school, as the new president

Jonathan Levin, the 13th president of Stanford University, has been appointed to take on his new role after serving as dean of the business school. He will officially assume the position in the fall, succeeding Richard Saller who has been interim president since September 2023.

In a statement, Levin expressed his gratitude and humility in being chosen to lead Stanford University, a place that has been significant to him for over three decades. He has been a faculty member at Stanford since 2000 and has served as dean of the business school for the past eight years. In addition to his academic role, he is also a member of President Joe Biden’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Levin credits Stanford for shaping his academic career and providing opportunities for collaboration and innovation. Having completed his undergraduate studies in English and mathematics at Stanford before earning a master’s degree from Oxford University and a PhD from MIT, he is well-equipped to lead the university towards continued excellence in education and research.
