Center for Social Concern
Center for Social Concern
The Center for Social Concern is an office within the Homewood Student Affairs division of Johns Hopkins that is dedicated to volunteerism and community engagement. The Center emphasizes the value of service with others. Volunteers and community members enter into an educational process where both benefit from the interaction, and reciprocal learning is the common ground for all of our initiatives. Our programs and efforts are striving to create a “better community” in and around the Johns Hopkins campus.
25th Anniversary Celebration
The Center for Social Concern is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! Read more about the CSC’s celebratory event during Alumni Weekend on April 21st.
To help us celebrate, we’d love for all JHU students to get involved and engage this year with our many wonderful community partners in our Baltimore Community! Read more below about how to get involved.
- If you are a new student to Hopkins, the CSC’s programs provide a perfect opportunity for you to learn about Baltimore and meet some new friends who have your same interests.
- If you are an upperclassman new to the CSC and looking for a new experience that will be fun and impactful, you’ve come to the right place.
- If you are already active at the CSC, help us spread the word and get students involved and working with you! Tell them about your experiences and which programs have impacted you the most.
- If you are a faculty member, consider teaching a Community-Based Learning course or joining the next Engaged Scholar Faculty and Community Fellows Program cohort.
