Welcome to the Office of the Provost
Johns Hopkins’ first president, Daniel Gilman, promised “knowledge for the world.” Today the university continues that mission by revolutionizing the ways in which we conduct our research, support our faculty, and inspire our students.
Our Bloomberg Distinguished Professors are intellectual bridges connecting scholars across disciplines to unite in discovery. Our Catalyst, Discovery, and Frontier awards are all aimed at supporting the promising research and creative endeavors of our faculty. Our Charles Village and Station North projects, and our Gateway Sciences Initiative offer a student living and learning experience that engages beyond the classroom. And our Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion, Forums on Race in America, and Faculty Diversity Initiative continue our commitment to share values of diversity and inclusion in the Johns Hopkins community.
These are just a few examples of today’s Johns Hopkins. We welcome you and invite you to explore.
Robert C. Lieberman
Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
