In case you missed it…

A video of University President Richard Levin’s hour-long interview with Charlie Rose of PBS last night is now online. In the interview, Levin declared himself a fox (as opposed to a hedgehog, making reference to Isaiah Berlin’s famous metaphor), said he would “personally love it if we had a little more structure in the undergraduate curriculum of our colleges,” and outlined some of his thoughts about the recession.

Levin last spoke with Rose in 2004, when they had a similarly wide-ranging discussion. Sartorially inclined observers might notice that the president wore nearly identical clothes both times he sat down in Rose’s studio.
