Jonathon Simon Named Inaugural Robert A. Knox Professor
Boston University School of Public Health Professor Jonathon Simon has been named the first Robert A. Knox Professor, a newly created endowed professorship designed to support a faculty member who has an outstanding record of scholarship and teaching in public health and management.
The professorship was established through a $2.5 million gift from The Robert and Jeanne Knox Foundation, a philanthropic entity co-founded by BU Board of Trustees Chair Robert Knox (CAS ’74, GSM ’75) and his wife, Jeanne, who heads the BU Parents Leadership Council.
I am honored to be named the inaugural holder of the Robert A. Knox Chair at Boston University,” said Simon. I deeply appreciate that Bob and Jeanne Knox have made such a generous commitment to promoting the Center for Global Health and Development and the School of Public Health in our efforts to address challenging global health problems. I am also grateful to President Brown and Provost Morrison for their ongoing support of the University’s global health efforts.
