Following a unanimous vote of the Board, Tony Anderson, a Public Transit partner in the Washington, D.C. office, has been elected to the 35-member Board of Trustees for Johns Hopkins University. Tony began a six-year term on July 1.
The Board of Trustees is the oldest part of the 21,000-student, Baltimore-based university, nationally recognized as the country’s first research university. The Board has responsibility for:
Tony has maintained a strong connection to the University since graduating in 1976 with a degree in International Relations. More than a decade ago, he was one of the first Johns Hopkins alumni to participate in a then-new scholarship program, Baltimore Scholars program through the Hopkins Fund, in which alumni pledged substantial financial support to defray the expenses of an individual student who came to Hopkins from a Baltimore public high school. The scholarship holds a special meaning to Tony because it increases access to Hopkins for public school students in a school system where students of color and economically disadvantaged students are disproportionately represented.
As for serving on the Board of Trustees, Tony noted, “Hopkins gave me more than I can possibly return. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to repay that debt through Board service."
