What We Do

The Office of Federal Strategy creates and executes the strategic vision for Johns Hopkins’ federal policy goals. This includes facilitating the involvement of Johns Hopkins leadership, faculty, students and staff in the federal legislative and regulatory process. The team is not only responsible for responding to the current policy environment and defending against risks, but also positioning institutional thought leaders to help shape the federal policy agenda. 

Our Approach

As the nation’s top university recipient of federal research dollars, a leading institution of higher education, and preeminent provider of health care, our advocacy efforts align with the institution’s mission of research, education, and patient care. The federal team’s success relies, in part, on strategic partnerships and collaborations with peer institutions and national associations for maximum influence and impact. We deliver actionable intelligence to Johns Hopkins leadership so that they may incorporate that knowledge into institutional strategy.
