edited May 2013 in University of Chicago
Where did most of the nation’s top university presidents receive their degrees? Here is a list of where the presidents of the U.S News Top 25 National Universities received their degrees (undergraduate and graduate.) If a school has announced a new president, I listed the degrees for its incoming president.

I grouped the UChicago listings at the top:

UChicago: Brandeis, Harvard
Berkeley: Wesleyan University, UChicago
Princeton: Princeton, Oxford, UChicago
UVA: Michigan State, UChicago
Yale: Stanford, Yale
Harvard: Bryn Mawr College, University of Pennsylvania
Stanford: Villanova University, State University of New York at Stony Brook
University of Pennsylvania: Harvard, London School of Economics
Duke: Yale
Caltech: Arts et M

    you sure you got this right? From Princeton's website:


    Shirley M. Tilghman
    Professor of Molecular Biology

    Shirley M. Tilghman was elected Princeton University's 19th president on May 5, 2001, and assumed office on June 15, 2001. An exceptional teacher and a world-renowned scholar and leader in the field of molecular biology, she served on the Princeton faculty for 15 years before being named president.

    Tilghman, a native of Canada, received her Honors B.Sc. in chemistry from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, in 1968. After two years of secondary school teaching in Sierra Leone, West Africa, she obtained her Ph.D. in biochemistry from Temple University in Philadelphia.
