J Daniels Biography & Facts

Ronald Joel Daniels (born 1959) is a Canadian academic and the current president of The Johns Hopkins University, a position which he assumed on March 2, 2009. Daniels' tenure in this role has been extended twice, and is currently set to run through 2024. Daniels was previously the vice-president and provost at the University of Pennsylvania, and prior to that was dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. Daniels received his B.A. and J.D. degrees from the University of Toronto, and his LL.M. degree from Yale Law School. In December 2016, Daniels was invested into the Order of Canada at the grade of Member. He was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 2018 and is also a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Early career Daniels was provost and professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania and dean and James M. Tory Professor of Law at the University of Toronto, where he was editor in chief of the University of Toronto Faculty of Law Review. He was also a visiting professor and Coca-Cola World Fellow at Yale Law School, as well as a John M. Olin Visiting Fellow at Cornell Law School. He received a Carnegie Corporation of New York Academic Leadership Award in 2015.He has advised several Canadian governments on a host of policy issues, including chairing the Ontario Panel of the Future of Government, the Market Design Committee (defining market structure of new competitive electricity markets in Ontario), and the Ontario Government Task Force on Securities Regulation and the Reform of Accounting Standards; he also served on the Toronto Stock Exchange Committee on Corporate Governance in Canada. Presidency of Johns Hopkins University Since March 1, 2009, Ronald J. Daniels has served as the 14th president of The Johns Hopkins University. As president, Daniels has continued the university’s 38 year legacy of having the most federal research funding in the country. In 2013, Daniels announced the creation of Ten by Twenty, the university’s first comprehensive strategic plan, setting goals for the school through 2020. His Rising to the Challenge campaign, costing $6 billion and ending in 2018, emphasized Daniels' three overarching themes - increasing interdisciplinary collaborative research and innovation, enhancing individual student excellence, and larger social involvement within the Baltimore community. In March 2015, Daniels released the first Ten by Twenty progress report. At the same time, he announced the launch of the Johns Hopkins Idea Lab, a source of crowdsourcing initiatives from the Johns Hopkins community. The Idea Lab was inspired by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory's Ignition Grants. Winners of the Idea Lab competition win $20,000 to support their initiative. Daniels serves as the chair of the executive committee of Johns Hopkins Medicine – the entity linking the Johns Hopkins Health System and the university’s School of Medicine. Daniels has worked closely with health system leadership through several strategic acquisitions and partnerships across health-related industry sectors.Daniels has made attempts to strengthen Johns Hopkins' ties to Baltimore with programs such as HopkinsLocal, which hired hundreds of employees from within economically deprived neighborhoods in the city. The University has partnered with several city schools, and helped create the Henderson-Hopkins elementary/middle school, the first new school in East Baltimore built in 20 years. Daniels also secured funding for the renovation of the historic Parkway Theater in the Station North area of the city. Notable initiatives Daniels has begun several initiatives focusing on interdisciplinary research and innovation; including the Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Analytics Platform (PMAP), the Bloomberg-Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, and the recently announced partnership among the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and The New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute. Throughout his time at Johns Hopkins, Daniels has also founded the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs, the William H. Miller Department of Philosophy, the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, and the Bloomberg Distinguished Professorship. The Bloomberg Distinguished Professors program recruits 50 scholars from around the world who are experts in their field to hold joint appointments in two or more departments of the university. In addition, Daniels founded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute which aims to discuss the need for universities to play a larger role in teaching students how to properly uphold their democratic duties, and increase the emphasis on civic education engagement and dialogue.Another focus of Daniels' has been in strengthening the graduate, specifically PhD programs, at the university. Under the Gateway Science Initiative, Daniels established the first university-wide board to advocate for and support PhD programs. Furthermore, Daniels has created a PhD innovation fund, as well as a movement to collect and analyze data on PhD program performance. Financial aid efforts In a US News article, Daniels stated that Johns Hopkins would “open [their] doors not to students whose parents can cut the check, but to those who can do the work and benefit from the opportunities we offer”. He strongly believes that the cost of college should not be a deciding factor in receiving a proper liberal arts education, and that it is the duty of the institution, whether it be a private or public university, to ensure that. For the past decade, he has roughly increased the financial aid budget of the school by 10 percent each year. In 2017, he and his wife Joanne Rosen have announced the founding of the Daniels-Rosen First Generation Scholars Fund for Johns Hopkins undergraduates, which is a $1 million endowment for those who are the first in their families to attend college. Need-blind and legacy policies To further champion his efforts in reducing barriers for minorities and kids from poorer communities, Daniels has switched the admissions process of the university to become need-blind and not consider legacy, because “legacy students at these schools are more likely to be wealthy and white than non-legacy students, the very existence of legacy preferences limits access for high-achieving low- and middle-income students, and also for African American, Latino, and Native American students”. East Baltimore Development Initiative One of Daniels' major initiatives has been the controversial $1.8 billion, 88-acre East Baltimore Development Initiative (EBDI), a redevelopment of the Middle East neighborhood, adjacent to Hopkins' downtown hospital campus. Alluding to the central importance of the project to his presidency, Daniels said "If EBDI fails, then my presidency at Hopkins fails." The redevelopment has been praised by some in Baltimore, and counts as partners the State of Marylan.... Discover the J Daniels popular books. Find the top 100 most popular J Daniels books.
