Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships

The Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships (BDPs) will form a cadre of fifty world-class faculty
members whose excellence in research, teaching, and service will be centered on interdisciplinary
scholarship. The BDPs will bridge the university’s schools and divisions, conduct and stimulate
innovative research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, and train a new generation of
native “interdisciplinarians.” Together they will strongly advance the university’s commitment to
new directions in scholarship and to fields where Johns Hopkins is especially well poised to assume
a position of intellectual leadership. Chief among these fields are the university’s five Signature
Initiatives, and initially the BDPs will be deployed in support of these initiatives. Read more about
