School Description

Johns Hopkins University, opened in 1876, was named after the 19th-century Maryland philanthropist Johns Hopkins, who believed in improving public health and education in Baltimore and beyond. Hopkins set aside $7 million in his will to establish a hospital and affiliated training colleges, an orphanage, and a university. Daniel Coit Gilman, the first president of Johns Hopkins University brought this dream to life. He built the University on the belief that “teaching and research go hand in hand... and that a modern university must do both well. He also believed that sharing our knowledge and discoveries would help make the world a better place.”

Johns Hopkins University has stayed true to this vision over the years. Today the University has nine academic divisions: The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences; the Whiting School of Engineering; the Bloomberg School of Public Health; the Carey Business School; the Peabody Institute; the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies; and the schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Education, in addition to the Applied Physics Laboratory – a nonacademic division that supports national security and pursues space science, exploration of the solar system, and other civilian research and development.

Some of the University’s notable alumni include, four Pulitzer Prize Winners: Russell Baker, columnist for The New York Times; Richard Ben Cramer, journalist; James McPherson, historian and author; Caryle Murphy, journalist and longtime international reporter for The Washington Post. It also includes, the 28th US President; Oscars, Grammys and Emmys Winners; CEOs, scientists; famous conservationists and authors among others.
