The university’s faculty and staff are the bedrock of our institution, grounding our research, teaching, and service. More than any other factor, our ability to attract, support, and, perhaps most importantly, retain faculty and staff will determine our future for decades to come. We must commit ourselves to practices, programs, and ethos so we are able to recruit faculty and staff who honor the standards of our best.
Since the launch of the Ten by Twenty, the university invested in areas such as new child care facilities, and expanded its faculty mentoring programs. In 2015, the university will continue to grow its support, building on existing initiatives and launching new ones in areas such as early career faculty, diversity initiatives, and marriage benefits—all aimed at creating an environment that makes faculty and staff want not just to begin their careers at Hopkins but to finish them here.
