The Johns Hopkins University board of trustees appointed Ronald J. Daniels to an additional five years as president, extending his tenure as leader of the institution through June 2024.
Board chair Jeffrey H. Aronson says the action represents a vote of confidence in Daniels' leadership and recognition of the progress he has made toward achieving goals. Specifically, Aronson cited the ways departments and divisions work more closely together; efforts to support students, faculty, and staff; and the university's growing support for Baltimore.
"I am thrilled and humbled to be able to lead this institution," says Daniels. "It is a profound privilege to work closely with our extraordinary faculty, students, staff, and alumni as we advance our great mission."
The trustees' vote marks the second time the board has extended Daniels' term. He took office as president of the university in March 2009 and was appointed to a second five-year term in January 2014.
