Given in 1989 by the Independence Foundation of Philadelphia, the endowment was intended for an academic chair that could help nursing programs engage in long-term planning and support programs for education.

At JHSON, Glass has helped further excellence in education by serving as director of the MSN/MPH Public Health Nursing program and coordinator of the Coverdell Peace Corps Fellows program. She has a joint appointment in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
