Co-Sponsorship Guidelines and Request

Guidelines and requirements for co-sponsorship of academic and community events, programs, and initiatives

The Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute (UHI) works across the University to advance health and health equity in Baltimore via a wide range of programs, events, educational, and funding opportunities designed to facilitate collaborations, mobilize resources, and advance dialogue and community representation. Through co-sponsorship, we aim to provide funding and/or logistical support to organizations, academic centers, and departments who share and support our mission with the following objectives:

  • To define how the UHI lends its name and iconography to co-sponsor events and initiatives of others.
  • To offer co-sponsorships as a vehicle for increasing participation and attendance for programs and initiatives.
  • To expand impact both internally and externally by co-sponsoring programs and initiatives.
  • To unify efforts across Johns Hopkins and Baltimore.

Types of Co-Sponsorship

  • Financial co-sponsorship is when the UHI provides financial support for events, programs, and initiatives that align with the UHI’s strategic goals.
  • Non-Financial Resource co-sponsorship must be aligned with the UHI’s strategic goals and is a collaboration where UHI provides expertise of its team by jointly arranging an event, program, or initiative and contributing to its programming. This type of co-sponsorship may include:
    • Logistical and planning support
    • Marketing and advertising
  • Full co-sponsorship is when UHI provides both financial and non-financial resource support.
