Indoor Masking and Food Policy

All Johns Hopkins affiliates on any JHU campus must wear a mask while inside, regardless of their vaccination status. This decision comes as a result of the most recent CDC recommendations.

Eating meals in indoor shared spaces is restricted to areas where a six-foot distance can be maintained. Designated meal areas are established inside the Education Building and are available from 3 to 5 p.m. when classes are in session. There are also tables outside for eating.

Compliance Monitoring through Prodensity

Be sure to download and use Prodensity for daily health checks. The university will continue to use the Prodensity app to monitor compliance with JHU COVID safety policies, including the vaccination mandate. If you are a fully online student or an employee working on a 100% remote basis, or you do not plan to visit JHU campus or travel on behalf of JHU, go to Prodensity and set your status to “Off-campus” so that you no longer receive reminder emails. Other than resetting your campus status, no other action is required.

Hop-in Coaching: Coaching Sessions with IFC Coach Carey Borkoski, EdD | Fall 2021

Hop-in Coaching: Coaching Sessions with IFC Coach Carey Borkoski, EdD

What are your academic and professional goals? What are your core values? How are you honoring these values? How do your goals and core values align? These are just a few questions that you can explore in a Hop-in Coaching session. These sessions are being offered to SOE students for the first time this fall.  Coaches employ a set of tools that includes powerful questions, active listening, curiosity and staying in a moment all to unearth and amplify an individual’s values, interests, and gifts. While mentor and academic advising relationships thrive on giving advice and assessing choices and decisions, coaching relies on the art of inquiry and presence to impact individuals in client-guided topics and interest areas.  Whether you want to identify your core values, articulate academic or professional goals or just explore something that came up during the day, coaching offers a way to discern your own interests and plans from external pressures and influences. It represents s a collaborative way to practice listening to and trusting your intuition and finding your voice.

Regardless of experience, context, or circumstance, there are enormous personal and professional benefits to coaching. Trained coaches use powerful questions to elevate and unlock your potential and possibilities. Hop-in Coaches use authentic inquiry and active listening to help individuals and groups notice, name, and navigate their experiences.

If you are interested in participating in this unique opportunity to supplement your academic experience, please email by September 15
