JHURA, working with the Principal Investigator (PI) and respective department staff, will negotiate the terms and conditions of the sponsored research agreements. Various issues arise during this process and some helpful resources are provided here. JHURA is the only office authorized to conduct negotiations and always involves the PI in the process as needed. Under no circumstances should the PI sign a sponsored research agreement.
JHU Use of Name
The JHU Name and Marks are among JHU’s most valuable assets. The widely recognized JHU Name and Marks represent the high caliber of the JHU faculty, staff, and students and the quality and breadth of their integrity and endeavors. Every use of the JHU Name and Marks conveys an association with JHU and potentially affects the institution’s reputation. Therefore, the activities with which the JHU Name and Marks are associated must be consistent with the JHU mission and values, and with appropriate standards of quality and excellence. For questions on the application of these guidelines or for guidance on uses of the JHU Name and Marks, please contact the university Office of Communications.
