The Provost’s Prize for Faculty Excellence in Diversity

The Provost’s Prize for Faculty Excellence in Diversity

(Next call for nominations: Spring 2018)

Current full-time Johns Hopkins faculty members in any discipline with bodies of work focused on diversity and inclusion are eligible for the $50,000 Provost’s Prize for Faculty Excellence in Diversity.  Faculty members are invited to nominate a colleague, or self-nominations are encouraged.

The prize acknowledges faculty efforts across a broad spectrum of disciplines, such as international affairs, business, education, science, health, public policy, the arts, and other fields. For the award, diversity is broadly defined and includes issues related to underrepresented minorities, women, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or disabilities.

A 10-member committee representing all nine academic divisions will review the nominations and recommend a winner to the vice provost for faculty affairs.

The winner will be honored at the Diversity Leadership Council’s annual awards ceremony, to be held May 2018.

Please note:  Previous prize winners and finalists are ineligible to apply the following contest year.

Nominations must include:

  • A letter (two pages maximum) describing how the nominee’s body of work promotes the advancement of understanding, acceptance, and/or solidarity for the confluence of cultures that embody the global world. (Self-nominations require a one-page cover letter from the nominee and a two-page letter of support from a full-time Johns Hopkins faculty member.)
  • A statement from the nominee (two pages maximum) describing the contribution his or her work makes to the advancement of diversity.
