O'Malley Joins Johns Hopkins as Visiting Faculty Member

BALTIMORE, Md. - Outgoing Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will join the Johns Hopkins University business school as a visiting faculty member next month.

O'Malley, who leaves office Wednesday after two four-year terms, made the announcement Friday via twitter. 

The university says the governor will participate in classes on such topics as leadership, infrastructure, entrepreneurship, and ethics. He also will work with other faculty members and students on their studies of management in the government sector.

"The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School is training students to be both business leaders and exemplary citizens who will improve society and increase value for all stakeholders," Dean Bernie Ferrari said. "Gov. O'Malley's wealth of experience and leadership will be a welcome addition to our faculty and in the classroom. We are delighted to have him."

The university says O'Malley, who is also a former mayor and city council member of Baltimore, which is where the university is located, will also be a part of Johns Hopkins' 21st Century cities initiative, involving faculty members from disciplines across the university to study and propose approaches to issues affecting cities, including economic growth, urban education, violence, urban health, and support for arts and culture.

"I am honored to join Johns Hopkins University, a world-class institution that has done so much for Baltimore and Maryland," O'Malley said. "As both a mayor and governor, I've worked to make government work better for all of our citizens through a relentless focus on data and transparency. Our efforts got results --- driving violent crime down to record lows, recovering 100 percent of the jobs lost during the recession, and restoring the health of the Chesapeake Bay for generations to come. I look forward to sharing management insights from these past two decades with the next generation of leaders at Johns Hopkins."

O'Malley joins the faculty Feb. 2.

Also speaking in Annapolis on Friday, O'Malley confirmed he's still seriously considering a run for president in 2016, and he is planning speaking events around the country after he leaves office next week.
