The Academy at Johns Hopkins is comprised of Emeritus, Emerita and retired faculty from the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health. Membership recognizes the decades long experience of these members who are able to share their wisdom and experience to benefit our students, faculty, institution and neighboring communities.
Thirty five academy members have expressed interest to serve as advisors, mentors or coaches and bring unique perspectives. Academy members have long-term experience, often in leadership positions both within the institution, nationally and internationally and have had time to reflect on their respective careers. Because they don’t have any current direct supervisory relationship with faculty, this can lead to more honest and transparent dialogues. Academy faculty can serve as augmenting mentors to faculty.
The areas of interest and expertise for their roles in mentoring/advising or coaching is quite robust. These range from advocacy, clinical interactions, conflict resolution, curriculum development, educational scholarship, leadership development, research scholarship (including grant writing and writing manuscripts) teaching skills, work life integration and more. Faculty members who could benefit from augmenting their mentoring team can access mentors through the LinkED website.
