A Message from the Chairs

After a challenging two years for so many, we find ourselves excited and very optimistic to once again lead the family volunteer and giving efforts for Johns Hopkins University. Whether you are new Class of 2026 parents or like us- seasoned Blue Jay parents with our daughter, Lorraine, entering her final year as a KSAS student, we want you to know that parents are highly valued and important members of the Hopkins family!

The Parents Programs and Giving office and the Hopkins Parents Council are here to assist and partner with you on your family’s extraordinary journey. We encourage you to fully integrate into the university community and get involved to create and enrich your own parallel Hopkins experience. We suggest:

As fellow parents, we share a common interest in wanting the best and most rewarding Hopkins experience for all Blue Jays. Your impactful support and participation will ensure that happens. We look forward to meeting you whether in person or virtually and partnering to make this academic year the very best it can be.

– Ellis and Rose

Vitcov familyThe Hopkins Parents Council has paved the way for us to network with other Blue Jay Families. The work of the HPC provides students with an array of extracurricular activities, ways to build camaraderie, develop skills outside of the classroom, and get a break from their busy academic lives. How could we not want to be a part of that?
