Johns Hopkins University Releases a Roadmap for Achieving Diversity and Inclusion

JHUNewSquareJohns Hopkins University in Baltimore has published the JHU Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion. The draft report has been issued with the hope that members of the university community will make comments aimed at improving the draft plan that will be revised and implemented this coming fall.

In releasing the draft plan, Ronald J. Daniels, president of Johns Hopkins University, stated that “diversity of thought, people, and experiences is central for the excellence of our work, and to our education, research, and service missions.”

The draft plan emphasizes four goals:

  • Achieving greater diversity of membership in the JHU community
  • Improving opportunity for JHU community members of all backgrounds
  • Enabling robust engagement with diverse viewpoints
  • Fostering a climate of respect

Some measures outlined to help achieve these goals are adding new diversity officers, increasing cultural diversity offerings in student orientation programs, efforts to recruit and retain minority faculty members, programs to increase the number of students from underrepresented minority groups on campus, an increase in counseling and support programs for students of color, and the hiring of five new faculty members for the Center for Africana studies.
