Murphy Family Chair for Asian Studies

The Murphy Family Chair for Asian Studies was established in 2009 by the Grayson M.P. Murphy Family to provide an endowment to fund Asian studies at Groton School, with particular emphasis on Chinese language and culture. Since 2015, Shannon Jin has held this chair.

Groton School is a diverse and intimate community devoted to inspiring lives of character, learning, leadership, and service.
Groton School is recognized as one of America's top boarding schools. It prepares students in grades 8-12 for the "active work of life."
