Grove Haines Professorship

HainesGroveGROVE HAINES was the visionary founder of the Bologna Center, which opened doors in 1955. Through his indefatigable efforts, SAIS was able to establish an international campus at which American and European students could dialogue on the international issues of the day.

Following his retirement in 1972, he received the Medal of Honor of the Federal Republic of Germany. He was similarly honored by the governments of Austria and Italy. Dr. Haines, who died in 1976, is remembered for instilling in those who worked and studied at the Bologna Center a sense of purpose about their role in helping to rebuild the world and unite Europe following World War II.

In recognition of his accomplishments, a C. Grove Haines Professorship was established at SAIS Europe upon his death in 1992 by his widow and friends. In 2020, thanks to the pivotal contribution of JHU trustee and SAIS Europe Advisory Council chairman James Anderson (B’81) the Professorship endowment was considerably increased and in 2021 Mark Gilbert, Professor of History and International Studies, was named the first C. Grove Haines Professor at SAIS Europe.
