Individual Excellence

Since its founding as America’s first research university, Johns Hopkins has defined the modern American institution of higher education. The university is committed to a simple premise: that it is the best place in the world to grow, discover, and achieve. To continue that legacy, the institution must attract the most talented minds and, once they are here, help them realize their full promise.

For our students, this means unparalleled opportunities for intellectual growth and accomplishment and connections to teachers, mentors, the community, and one another. For our faculty, it means an intellectual environment that supports bold innovation, freedom of thought, collegiality and discovery, and the relentless pursuit of excellence. And for our staff, it means a workplace that respects their contributions and provides meaningful opportunities for professional development and advancement.
