His memoir of his presidency, Keeping An Open Door, coauthored with Leslie Banner, was published by Duke Press in 1996.

During his tenure, applications to Duke's graduate and undergraduate programs increased greatly as the school became a nationally known research university. Academic initiatives included the establishment of an Institute of Statistics and Decision Sciences and a new School of the Environment. Interdisciplinary planning was reflected in a new science building, the Levine Science Research Center, which brought together faculty from varied disciplines. Other capital projects added a dormitory, a building for policy sciences and public affairs, medical research buildings, and the campus wide network, DukeNet. Duke made efforts to increase the number of African-Americans in academia with a Black Faculty Initiative and a Program for Preparing Minorities for Academic Careers. Increased faculty participation in the governance of the University was made possible by the establishment of the President's Advisory Council on Resources.
