Provost’s Office Faculty Initiatives

Our faculty are engaged in groundbreaking initiatives designed to strengthen the university, and innovative cross-divisional initiatives that use collaboration to fuel creative solutions to difficult problems. The Office of Faculty Affairs aims to support these efforts through coordination, information dissemination, and with initiatives specifically developed through and run by this office. These initiatives are guided in part by principles outlined in the Roadmap for Diversity and Inclusion and the JHU 10×20 – A Vision for Johns Hopkins by 2020.

The Academy

The Academy @ Homewood

The Academy at Johns Hopkins – Homewood is an institute for advanced study whose purpose is to foster the continued scholarship and research of retired faculty of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS). We regard the faculty within the Academy as a rich source of knowledge and experience and a vital element of the University’s intellectual community.

The retired faculty of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences is one of its greatest assets. The entire University community benefits from their involvement on campus, both with each other and with current faculty and students. Many retired faculty choose to remain actively engaged in their scholarship after they retire, and they prefer to pursue their scholarly activities within the context of the University community. Others wish to stay involved by attending lectures, contributing to and following new developments in fields of interest. To provide that context, KSAS has established the Academy at Johns Hopkins. The mission of the Academy is to enhance the voluntary participation of retired faculty in the intellectual life of the University.

Scholarly activity of the Academy includes research opportunities and benefits, valedictory lectures given by new Academy members, and regular themed seminars organized by Academy professors. The Academy occupies the Greenhouse on the Homewood campus.

The Academy @ East Baltimore

The Academy at Johns Hopkins – East Baltimore supports the continued research, teaching and service of retired faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing.

Honoring our retired faculty for their exceptional wisdom, intelligence and experience, the Academy actively engages retired faculty in the Johns Hopkins community in ways that benefit our students, patients, disciplines and institution, and that support their ongoing professional fulfillment.

Dual Career Program

At Johns Hopkins University, our goal is to attract and retain the highest quality candidates for faculty positions within our university. We are committed to assisting spouses/partners locate employment opportunities by offering information, personal assistance and support.

Faculty Diversity Initiative

The Faculty Diversity Initiative (FDI) is a cornerstone of Johns Hopkins’ diversity and inclusion efforts. It recognizes the fact that changes in the composition of our faculty in turn impact the student body, campus climate, research, and pipeline of graduate students.

Faculty Mentoring

The purpose of faculty mentoring is to support, facilitate, and enhance the development of faculty throughout the early and middle career stages.
