For the first time in its history, the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School has received an endowment to create a named faculty chair, the R. Clayton Emory Chair in Real Estate and Infrastructure. Professor Ko Wang is the inaugural recipient of this chair.

CLAY EMORY, founder of Emory Properties, established the chair in support of his personal commitment to real estate education. Emory is a 1956 graduate of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins and a 2012 recipient of the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association’s Heritage Award. For many decades, Emory has been a successful real estate developer throughout the United States. He has also served as an advisor to the Real Estate and Infrastructure program at the Carey Business School.
