The Johns Hopkins University Open Source Programs Office (OSPO)

The OSPO is the central hub for all things open source at JHU. We are committed to helping faculty, staff, and students use, contribute to, and benefit from open-source software by:

  • Cultivating an engaged, sustainable, and collaborative open source community
  • Building awareness of the value and impact of open source within the University
  • Providing resources, tools, and engineering support to promote the use of open source within the university community
  • Supporting the participation of faculty, staff, and students in open source through educational programs, information sharing, and guidance on best practices
  • Facilitating the translation of open-source software into products and services that generate social impact and commercial success
