About Jane Schlegel
Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer
Jane Schlegel, the executive vice dean for finance and administration at the Bloomberg School of Public Health for the past 11 years, stepped into a new leadership role at Johns Hopkins in April. As the first vice president and chief administrative officer of the university, she is responsible for overseeing and driving operational performance improvements within the areas of university human resources, procurement, information technology, and risk management and compliance. She also leads Johns Hopkins’ incident command system and oversees the university’s emergency management capability.
At the Bloomberg School, Schlegel was responsible for the day-to-day operations of approximately 350 staff, served as the school’s incident commander for emergency situations, directed facilities and real estate operations, and oversaw the IT function and purchasing activity across 10 academic departments. She also led strategic planning and long-range fiscal planning for the school and managed a budget of nearly $600 million.
Schlegel’s career at Johns Hopkins has steadily advanced over three decades. She joined Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1989 and then took on various financial management and administrative roles at the Bloomberg School, beginning in 1994. Over the course of her career, she has gained a wealth of institutional experience. Given her division-level expertise and insightful perspectives on issues and opportunities across the institution, she is called on frequently to assist with universitywide initiatives.
Schlegel received her Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Baltimore. She currently serves as finance chair on the board of Unified Community Connections.
