Johns Hopkins University values an open and diverse education and training environment that fully supports federally funded research and international collaborations. Vice Provosts Denis Wirtz and Jon Links have previously explained the balance we must strike between open collaboration and our obligations to our federal funders. JHU is committed to both protecting U.S. research and innovation and to complying with U.S. Government directives and disclosure regulations.
Increased concern has been expressed through both legislative actions and agency regulations about protecting national security and U.S. economic interests when taxpayer dollars fund the University’s work. It is important that we be responsible stewards of these funds and ensure that we are mindful of protecting intellectual property and know-how, as required by the terms of our funding.
Below we provide guidance and resources regarding University compliance obligations.
|Faculty members must not accept offers of appointments at outside institutions (e.g., universities, institutes of higher education, research institutes, corporations or similar organizations) until written approval is granted by the faculty member’s respective Dean’s Office. In some cases, the commitment to the outside institution may require a reduction in the faculty member’s FTE appointment at the University. Faculty members should complete the standard request form for their division and submit it to their Department Administrator and/or Chair for review before an appointment can be considered.Once the review is complete, the application will be forwarded to their Vice Dean. The Dean’s office will coordinate the review with other offices and make a final decision regarding the proposed appointment.
