Closing / Next Steps

This is a draft. We encourage you to share your feedback and suggestions through the online submission form.

With this second Roadmap report and plan, Johns Hopkins has taken to heart the recommendations of the Roadmap Task Force and is eager to embark upon the next set of goals and initiatives to realize our aims for diversity, equity and inclusion at the university.

Like its predecessor, the second Roadmap is intended to be a living document that reflects our shared values and principles and specific, measurable commitments. We are, once again, posting this document in draft form, open to community feedback and comment for at least the next several weeks, and we are excited to hear from you about the goals and strategies included here. 

There are several ways to participate in offering your feedback. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion will be engaging key stakeholder groups in meetings during the week of November 29 and will share information on those opportunities to join the conversation. You also can provide feedback on the draft via the online comment form or directly to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at  

At the close of the community comment period, university leaderships will bring forward the recommendations of the second JHU Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion for endorsement by the JHU board of trustees. We hope to release a final version of the report to the community by the close of this calendar year, so that we all can turn in earnest to its implementation beginning in January.

By spring 2022, we plan to post on the ODI/Roadmap website a target timeline for each of our goals and next steps on implementation, including areas that will require or benefit from further consultation with faculty, staff, students, and neighbors. In addition, ODI will provide central support to the divisions as they develop and track their divisional implementation plans, with an eye towards annual reporting and regular sharing of progress towards our goals with our community.
