The Johns Hopkins University

"The encouragement of research ... and the advancement of individual scholars, who by their excellence will advance the sciences they pursue, and the society where they dwell."
Building from scratch, rather than taking over an existing institution, freed Gilman to create something entirely new, at least in the United States. He established a research university, dedicated not just to advancing students' knowledge but also to advancing the state of human knowledge generally, through research and scholarship.

Gilman dismissed the notion that teaching and research are separate endeavors; he believed that success in one depended on success in the other. "The best teachers are usually those who are free, competent and willing to make original researches in the library and the laboratory," Gilman said.

Student Life



The Office of the Dean of Student Life is directly responsible for many of the co-curricular programs on campus. The dean and her staff are accessible advocates for both the individual and group needs of students. Two associate deans support the dean—one in student development and programming, and one with orientation and judicial affairs. In addition to serving both undergraduate and graduate student populations, the office works with the dean of enrollment and academic services, the academic deans, and central administration to improve the quality of student life.

Accommodation

It is a proven fact that most learning happens outside the classroom. Within the residence halls, you will learn and grow as a productive citizen and resident with opportunities that challenge and explore your own personal development.
