Putting his money to good work

University Trustee Chuck Clarvit endows two professorships in the Krieger School's Program in Social Policy
Posted November 8, 2017

University trustee and Rising campaign co-chair Chuck Clarvit, A&S '78, firmly believes that Hopkins is the American institution that can have the greatest impact on the nation's future. And he believes that establishing two assistant professorships in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences' Program in Social Policy is one way he can contribute to that effort.

In June, sociologist Stefanie DeLuca and economist Nicholas Papageorge were installed as the James Coleman and Broadus Mitchell professors, respectively, thanks to a generous gift from Clarvit and his wife, Nancy. DeLuca and Papageorge already are collaborating on promising research that examines the intersections of of poverty, race, and education, issues of great importance to the Hopkins legends for which their new titles were named.

Learn more about DeLuca and Papageorge's work, and how the Clarvits' gift will advance social policy research, in the fall 2017 issue of Johns Hopkins Magazine.
