John Quigley Holds First Terner Professorship

Housing and urban policy expert John Quigley, professor of economics and public policy, has been appointed the first holder of the I. Donald Terner Distinguished Professorship in Affordable Housing and Urban Policy.

The professorship honors the memory of Berkeley faculty member Donald Terner, the founding president of the Bridge Housing Corporation and a pioneering advocate and builder of affordable housing. He was killed in a plane crash while traveling with the late Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown to Bosnia in 1996.

"For many students in planning, architecture, finance and real estate development, Don Terner provided a critical career role model," said Mary Corley, executive director of the policy advisory board research group of the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics, one of the campus units collaborating on the new program.

"He influenced the lives of many and changed the way people think about affordable housing," she noted. "John Quigley's expertise makes him a great choice as the first holder of the professorship."

Quigley, who joined the faculty in 1979, holds appointments in the Department of Economics, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the Haas School of Business.

The $3 million professorship is a collaboration among the Haas School of Business, the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics, and the College of Environmental Design. It is supported by numerous individual and corporate pledges.

Part of the proceeds will support a new certificate program on housing and urban policy directed by Quigley. The program supports research and teaching on urban development and policy throughout the campus.

It will also support internships for professional students in urban development and will work to build closer links between the university and the community.

The Terner Distinguished Professorship brings to 23 the number of Distinguished Professorships on the Berkeley campus, supporting research in engineering, management, interdisciplinary studies, law and other areas of study.
