Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) at Johns Hopkins is a department in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (led by Dean Chris Celenza). Associate Dean Veronica Donahue oversees all operations at AAP (student affairs, faculty, curriculum, staff, etc...). The work environment at AAP is characterized by harmful and unethical attitudes and practices, including bullying, harassment, undervalued personnel, overworked faculty, unclear staff expectations, lack of growth opportunities, pay disparities, heavy workloads, unfair policy and treatment, and favoritism. Donahue's office "leads" the division with inadequate communication, intimidation, gaslighting, a lack of transparency, and generally toxic management. DONAHUE IS VICIOUS, BLATANTLY INCOMPETENT AND UNPROFESSIONAL. The physical and mental health of AAP employees has been negatively impacted by this work environment (many are depressed and disengaged; our best faculty have left for other jobs and many employees are looking for other positions). In the end, none of this can be beneficial to our students. I would not recommend working here.
Veronica Donahue is the one and only reason I left Johns Hopkins University. She attacks anyone who disagrees with her. She is incapable of having an adult conversation. She tries to accuse her employees of incompetence to disguise her own incompetence. She is a pathological liar. She uses her position to retaliate against those who call out her nonsense. If you are a professional, avoid working at Hopkins-AAP at all costs until the administration takes appropriate action to have her removed.
We will send updates of new features, updates to the platform, blog posts, and other cool developments.
