The Office of Faculty Development seeks faculty feedback from three councils.

Additionally, the Faculty Senate and the OFD work closely together.

Faculty Senate

In order to provide a mechanism for the Faculty, Fellows and Students of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to participate more effectively in the deliberations and governance of  the Institution, the President of the Johns Hopkins University established THE COUNCIL OF THE MEDICAL SCHOOL. The Council was established in 1970, and its goals, composition, and procedures are set forth below. The first charter amendment was approved by the Medical School Council September 15, 1993, by Dean Johns September 27, 1993, and by President Richardson September 27, 1993.  The Council was renamed the Faculty Senate in 2012.
