Johns Hopkins’ Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute Professors Installed

November 27, 2021

The generosity of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore saw installation of eight professors through an endowment in a building still taking shape and celebration of the coming space.

“We could not be more pleased to have this extraordinary group of scholars with us at Hopkins to shape the SNF Agora, to sharpen our shared understanding of the challenges facing democracy, and to advance bold, evidence-based solutions that can begin to remedy those challenges,” said university President Ron Daniels, reported the site Hub.

He added that, “this faculty and this institute are moving reminders of the vital and indispensable work of universities like ours and the contributions we have to make to democracy.”

“At the core of the SNF Agora Institute are three driving elements: discovery, design, and dialogue,” Celenza said, presenting the academics.

“Our scholars discover new avenues to understanding democracy; they collaborate with others to design ways to translate and apply academic research in ways that can make a real-world impact; and they initiate productive dialogue to bridge divides and share new knowledge with students and the broader public,” he said.
