In recognition of philanthropic support from Robert “Bob” King, MBA ’60, and Dorothy “Dottie” King, the Stanford Center on Global Poverty and Development is changing its name to the Stanford King Center on Global Development. The support from the Kings, together with investments from other philanthropists, will create new research opportunities for faculty and students, inform public policy and engage private sector leaders.

The Stanford King Center brings together scholars and students from schools and institutes across the university to pursue innovative approaches based on data-driven research.

“The Stanford King Center on Global Development has an ambitious mission to alleviate poverty and promote global development,” said Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Stanford University president. “Stanford is profoundly grateful to Bob and Dottie King for their visionary support and to the other donors who share a commitment to improving the human condition.”
