Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has launched the first US-research university based open source programs office (OSPO). While the JHU OSPO leverages lessons learned from corporate OSPOs (e.g, TODO group, FOSS Contributor Fund), we are adapting and extending the OSPO model within the research university context. By treating open source software as a primary research object, the JHU OSPO is activating academic and administrative parts of the university to advance research, teaching, and translation in the form of community engaged social impact. Early examples of success include partnership with the City of Paris and a Baltimore community center (St. Francis Neighborhood Center) on an open source municipal services platform (Lutèce), becoming members of the Eclipse Foundation, submitting JHU open source software (PASS) as an official Eclipse Foundation product, and launching semesters of code (a deep academic course for a diverse range of students, projects, and community partners) through the associated Institute for Applied Source with JHU's Department of Computer Science and Microsoft. This presentation will describe the rationale, strategy, and playbook for university OSPOs, especially in context of existing similar efforts within the US, Ireland, and the European Union.
