- Dean Johns Hopkins School of Education
Christopher Morphew is dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Education. His research centers on issues of institutional diversity in higher education, particularly as it relates to state higher education policy and the ways in which colleges and universities communicate to their constituent groups. His books include "The Challenges of Independent Colleges: Moving Research to Practice" and "Privatizing the Public University: Perspectives from Across the Academy."
