Hopkins Parents Leadership Councils in Asia

Johns Hopkins University’s Parents Leadership Councils in Asia consist of engaged Blue Jay families who provide philanthropic support through the Hopkins Parents Fund, assist with events and activities in their respective regions, and serve as trusted advisors to Kevin Shollenberger, vice provost of student affairs, acting as resources with whom he and other university officials can discuss the student experience. Council members also assist the university in expanding its parent and student communities, as well as knowledge of JHU, throughout their region.
