Hopkins Parents Roundtable

Parents speaking with President Daniels

The Hopkins Parents Roundtable consists of a small group of families who live in the United States and abroad who serve as trusted, special advisors to JHU’s Vice Provost for Student Affairs and her leadership team. The Roundtable meets twice per year. At the fall gathering on the Homewood campus, families receive an insider perspective on JHU and consult with Vice Provost Rachelle Hernandez and campus leaders on timely issues related to the undergraduate student experience. At the spring gathering, Roundtable members receive university updates and meet with a guest speaker of interest. The Vice Provost also meets with families individually and collectively throughout the year to discuss how to advance the university’s mission.

Hopkins Parents Roundtable members are asked to:

  • Support the Hopkins Parents Fund or split between the Fund and any other area of interest at Johns Hopkins University with an annual gift at the Parents Leadership Circle – Roundtable Level
  • Attend the fall (on campus) and spring (in New York City) meetings
  • Host virtual/on-campus events and local receptions in your home region
  • Engage with students and alumni
  • Be an advocate for JHU in your home community
  • Serve on additional advisory boards, as requested
