ron_daniels_0Summer is when some teams decide to go looking for new players, but Johns Hopkins is sticking with its current leader for another five years.

According to the JHU Hub, the university’s board of trustees signed off on a five-year contract extension for Ronald J. Daniels. The move keeps Daniels in the top job through 2024.

Daniels took office in 2009, and has had one other contract extension since. Under his watch, the university has focused on recruiting elite professors through a Bloomberg program, expanding startups. This year, Hopkins led a community hiring pledge called HopkinsLocal.

“We are delighted to extend Ron’s leadership of Johns Hopkins,” said David C. Hodgson, the chair of the board of John Hopkins Medicine. “His vision has helped to bring our institution together to tackle complex challenges and to strengthen and reinforce our relationship with Baltimore.”
