Ronald J. Daniels has served as the 14th President of Johns Hopkins since 2009. During his tenure, Daniels has focused his leadership on several key areas: strengthening inter-disciplinary collaboration in research and education, enhancing student access, deepening engagement with the city of Baltimore, and supporting economic and social innovation. A law and economics scholar, he has written extensively on the intersections of law, economic development, and public policy, and advocated for the vital role that institutions–and especially institutions of higher education–play in promoting democratic values, including in the recently published What Universities Owe Democracy. Before coming to Johns Hopkins, he was provost and professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania and dean and James M. Tory Professor of Law of the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and the American Philosophical Society. In 2015, he received a Carnegie Corporation of New York Academic Leadership Award and was named a member of the Order of Canada in 2016. Daniels earned a BA and a JD from the University of Toronto and an LLM from Yale University.
