Helping Students Thrive

Building supports from Convocation through Commencement

Johns Hopkins wants its undergraduates to do more than simply survive their college experience. We want all our students—especially those who are first-generation college students or from families with limited incomes—to thrive.

It has since began offering an array of coaching, mentoring, and community-building programs, including:

Another example of the center’s support is the Career Closet. A partnership between the Career Center and the Center for Student Success, the program provides students with professional development workshops and guidance on career pathways and culminates in a shopping trip for professional attire to get students interview-ready.
