John P. Frank Distinguished Visiting Professorship Donors

The School of Social Transformation's Program in Justice and Social Inquiry greatly appreciates the generous support of a number of individuals and organizations for their financial commitments to expand the John P. Frank Memorial Lecture into an endowed Distinguished Visiting Professorship.

The professorship will ensure that John Frank's passions and dedication to "justice for all" continue to reach and inspire tomorrow's social changemakers. In addition to delivering the annual John P. Frank Memorial lecture, each year's distinguished visiting professor will participate in a more substantive way in the social justice, law and policy scholarly work at ASU, engaging with students and faculty in courses in the School of Social Transformation and across the university.

We offer special recognition to our supporters whose gifts and pledges of $10,000 or above are helping to put this campaign over the top!
