Johns Hopkins University


Johns Hopkins faculty, students, staff, and alumni have always made a practice of living, thinking, and acting globally. Johns Hopkins now reaches into nearly every corner of the globe—with campuses or centers in the United States, China, and Italy; research and training programs on every continent; medical facilities around the world; and distance education and online courses anywhere the Internet will take them.

As one of our academic divisions, it has established itself as a proven training ground for the world’s diplomats, with more than 130 graduates having served as international ambassadors. In various capacities, 16,000 alumni are currently working in approximately 140 countries.

The Johns Hopkins University opened in 1876, with the inauguration of its first president, Daniel Coit Gilman. What Gilman created was a research university, dedicated to advancing both students' knowledge and the state of human knowledge through research and scholarship. Gilman believed that teaching and research are interdependent, that success in one depends on success in the other. A modern university, he believed, must do both well. The realization of Gilman's philosophy at Johns Hopkins, and at other institutions that later attracted Johns Hopkins-trained scholars, revolutionized higher education in America, leading to the research university system as it exists today.

Johns Hopkins claims 36 Nobel laureates past and present. Among current faculty, there are four—as well as 52 American Academy of Arts and Sciences members; 57 members of the Institute of Medicine, six recipients of the Lasker Medical Research Award, six MacArthur fellows, four members of the National Academy of Engineering, 27 members of the National Academy of Sciences, two Presidential Medal of Freedom winners, and one Pulitzer Prize winner.
