What universities are good for: Duke’s Richard Brodhead at The City Club


CLEVELAND: Dr. Richard H. Brodhead, president of Duke University since July 2004, speaks about the role of higher education institutions in their communities and the world at noon on Friday, November 10, 2006, at The City Club of Cleveland.


Brodhead has called for Duke to become an international center in addressing health care inequities through a major global health initiative involving faculty and schools across the university, and has championed Duke’s efforts to bring the fruits of faculty and student research to serve society.


He has also been active in Durham promoting K-12 public education, several new community health clinics, and neighborhood revitalization through the Duke-Durham Neighborhood Partnership.

Nationally, Brodhead has been involved with education issues through the Business-Higher Education Forum and the Carnegie Corporation of
New York. He has also held a Presidential appointment to the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

Born in
Dayton, Brodhead received his Ph.D. from Yale in 1972, joined its faculty, and was named dean of Yale College in 1993. An expert in 19th century American literature, he has written or edited more than a dozen books. Brodhead’s scholarly work has been honored by election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he won the DeVane Medal for outstanding teaching.

Brodhead was awarded a Doctor of Humane Letters from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in May 2006, and received an Honorary Doctoral Degree from Tsinghua University in Beijing in June 2006; this is only the ninth honorary degree to be awarded to a non-Chinese person at Tsinghua, the second to a foreign university leader, and the first to a humanist.


Tickets for this City Club Friday Forum are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance of the event. They can be purchased by calling The City Club at 216.621.0082 or visiting the website at www.cityclub.org.


Established in 1912 to encourage new ideas and a free exchange of thought, The City Club of Cleveland is the oldest continuous free speech forum in the country, renowned for its tradition of debate and discussion. The City Club’s mission is to inform, educate and inspire citizens by presenting significant ideas and providing opportunities for dialogue in a collegial setting.
