Cathy and Marc Lasry established the chair in race relations at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 to allow a distinguished scholar, academic and educator to teach and do research in the School of Arts and Sciences with a special focus on the subject of race relations. This is not the Lasry family’s only venture into the support of University programs; the couple has also served as joint chairs of the Penn Parent Leadership Committee. Cathy also contributed her time to the School of Arts and Sciences Board of Overseers.
