Down But Not Out
Hopkins opens employment doors for the homeless.

Maurice Pretto’s modest one-bedroom apartment in Canton is minutes from Hopkins Hospital, his second home. But it wasn’t that long ago that Pretto, a biomedical engineering technician, didn’t have a roof over his head.

Diversity Survey

To gauge Johns Hopkins’ success in creating a culturally diverse environment, a new survey for all employees and faculty members is available through March 13. The Diversity Climate Survey, which was developed by the Johns Hopkins’ Diversity Leadership Council in partnership with the Commission on Equity, Civility and Respect and the Diversity Steering Committee, covers a wide variety of topics, including leadership, inclusion and civility. Participants can share views with respect to Hopkins’ strengths as well as areas of opportunity. Data collected from the survey will inform future policy and program development. The survey is completely anonymous and it is available online at or at Phipps 404. Take 15 minutes to complete the survey and make your opinions known.

Wilmer Building
Feast for the Eyes
As Wilmer Eye Institute’s new home nears completion, passersby are stopping in their tracks to ogle. Located on the corner of Broadway and Orleans Street, the 207,000-square-foot ultra-modern structure, designed by Adam Gross, is angled precisely toward the historic Wilmer dome, capturing its image on reflective glass.
