The Staff Advisory Council gives Johns Hopkins staff members the opportunity to raise their voices about the needs, opportunities, aspirations, and challenges that staff experience in their professional lives at JHU and provide critical input to leadership on decisions and policymaking around university initiatives, programming, and policies.
As a highly collaborative institution, insight from our diverse staff has always been instrumental in helping university leadership develop and improve programs for employees. The council will focus on ways to foster a more dynamic and desirable workplace and ensure our campus environment is one in which all our staff are welcomed and can thrive personally and professionally.
The council will work closely with university leadership and Human Resources, sharing their insights on topics that may include university policies; benefits; diversity, equity and inclusion; training and professional development; staff recognition and engagement; and other aspects of university operations.
