The Office of Faculty Development seeks faculty feedback from three councils. The two primary councils responsible for advising us on the professional development needs of Johns Hopkins faculty are as follows: the Senior Advisory Council and the Junior Faculty Resource Advisory Council. Additionally, the Faculty Senate and the OFD work closely together.
