Ronald J. Daniels, the president of Johns Hopkins University, has been given a contract extension to lead the school for five more years, the university announced recently.

The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve the extension through June 2029. His contract was set to expire in 2024, and is now set to end five years later.

“Over the last 12 years, Ron has led our University with his signature dynamism, imagination and intellect,” wrote Lou Forster, the board’s chair, in a statement.

Extending Daniels’ contract, Forster wrote, signals the university’s “full and unwavering confidence in the trajectory of our institution and its remarkable people … supported and sustained by President Daniels’ able leadership.”
