Dave Alexander of HUB.JHU (January 25, 2019) reports that the Johns Hopkins University has agreed to purchase the Newseum property at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue to a consolidate a home for all of its D.C.-based graduate programs. He elaborates by explaining that “moving the university’s D.C.-based graduate programs to a single campus will create new opportunities for interaction and collaboration among those pursuing advanced degrees in Washington at SAIS, the Carey Business School, the School of Nursing, and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences’ Advanced Academic Programs.” The university President Ronald J. Daniels also adds that “With the acquisition and renovation of the Newseum, we will have an unparalleled opportunity to bring all of our current D.C.-based Johns Hopkins graduate programs together in a single, landmark, state-of-the-art building.” This expansion will help to strengthen the Hopkins Biotech Network within steps of the U.S. Capitol building, and the decision-makers were debating critical issues in the nation’s capital and most powerful and influential city.
