Johns Hopkins establishes Humanities Institute

Philanthropist Elizabeth Grass Weese and her brother, Roger Grass, have committed $10 million to advance humanities scholarship and teaching at the Johns Hopkins University and to promote literature, art, philosophy, history, and other cultural studies in Baltimore and the wider community.

Their gift, through the Alexander Grass Foundation, is the largest ever to Johns Hopkins exclusively for the support of the humanities.

It establishes the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute as a focal point and important sponsor of programming for 10 humanities departments in the university’s Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, other departments in humanistic social sciences, and related centers and programs.
