The Leadership, Advancement, Development Academy

A Pathway for Faculty Excellence

The Office of Faculty Affairs is pleased to introduce the JHU Provost Leadership, Advancement, Development Academy, under the leadership of Dr. Charlene Gamaldo, inaugural Associate Vice Provost of The L.A.D. Academy. Join us in realizing the academy’s mission of Cultivating Leadership Identity Formation from Hire to Retire with university-wide access to vetted professional development resources and new provost-sponsored leadership cohort programs.

Programs and resources provided through The L.A.D. Academy will support President Daniel’s “One University” vision of the TEN FOR ONE Strategic Plan, aimed at creating a unified academic community that “embraces robust collaboration across world-class teaching, research, and community service, understanding that both our intellectual curiosity and our drive to advance humanity are better served if we work together.”

The Academy will offer a combination of commercially available and custom-developed courses and academic coaching to meet our faculty’s needs to include access to professional, leadership and DEI&A education and development material for academics at all career stages and leadership levels.  As part of The L.A.D. Academy’s effort to provide resources of universal benefit to members of our academic community, we have partnered with leading professional development subscription programs Academic Impressions and Nature Masterclasses to provide unlimited library access to their library including online courses.

About The L.A.D. Academy

The mission of the JHU Provost Leadership, Advancement, Development Academy is to cultivate the academic and leadership identity formation of Johns Hopkins University faculty from hire to retirement. The L.A.D. Academy also serves as a resource to support the efforts of existing faculty development programs offered across the university. With “something for everyone,” The L.A.D. Academy offers a centralized resource hub to support all Johns Hopkins University faculty in their development as cross-collaborative and inclusive academicians and leaders of excellence.

The L.A.D. Academy has partnered with leading professional development subscription programs Academic Impressions and Nature Masterclasses to provide unlimited library access to JHU collated curriculums, including online courses. Advancement through the program is complemented by the increased complexity of topics and content, among smaller clusters of potential participants.

Professional development offerings of universal benefit to our academic community will be expanded to offer those in the leadership pipeline new, cohort-specific leadership development programs. The JH Provost L.A.D. Academy will emerge as the model for recruiting, developing, and promoting the “best and the brightest” in academia.
