This Johns Hopkins Center That’s Helping Cities Harness Data Is Expanding

In 2015, Johns Hopkins launched the Center for Government Excellenceto help cities use data and evidence-based approaches in their work providing services and addressing civic issues.

Started as part of a Bloomberg Philanthropies effort called What Works Cities, GovEx, as it’s known, since helped 140 cities (including Baltimore) through technical assistance and coaching in building systems that use data and analytics.

Since launching, the center has expanded its work to offer more training for public sector personnel, as well as policy work that helped apply academic research at the local level, said Executive Director Beth Blauer. This week, the center launched an expansion that will formalize each of those core competencies and bring focus to the respective areas.
