Alumni leaders, students and faculty gathered for a weekend of vigorous intellectual exchange in over 50 seminars, panels and special presentations. They discussed some of the ways Yale has made a distinguished contribution to the intellectual, social and cultural life of the nation and the world. Levin hosted other notable presenters including artist Garry Trudeau, playwright Wendy Wasserstein, economic advisor Robert Rubin, Palm Pilot developer Donna Dubinsky and author Tom Wolfe.
