About the CSC
The Center for Social Concern fosters a lifelong commitment to active citizenship by integrating education, action, and reflection. We believe that EDUCATION is crucial for ethical community engagement. We believe it’s important to take ACTION in the lives of our communities. We believe that participating in REFLECTION and discovery is transformative to every students’ career at Hopkins and beyond.
In order to achieve this mission, we have developed programming that combines education, action, and reflection for a truly transformative experience. We offer a plethora of experiences that will fit your interest, ranging from one-on-one tutoring sessions with Baltimore City School students to cleaning up a community garden to participating in a year-long fellowship program, and many more. Through all of these experiences, you’ll gain a better understanding of Baltimore neighborhoods, local initiatives, culture, and leave with a deeper appreciation of your new home and community. You’ll also create meaningful friendships with fellow students who share similar passions for civic engagement, leadership, and volunteer work.

In summer 2009, CSC’s main facility moved from Levering Hall to 3103 North Charles Street (called the Center for Social Concern Building). This three-story home houses CSC’s staff, programs and student services, except for the Johns Hopkins University Tutorial Project, which is located on the second floor of Levering Hall. The Tutorial Project’s location is unique in that the main area of the space contains an incredible floor-to-ceiling mural done by Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D. “The Apocalypse” was commissioned in 1968 by Dr. Chester Wickwire, then-Chaplain of the Johns Hopkins University.
25th Anniversary Celebration
The Center for Social Concern celebrated 25 years of engagement with our community in 2017-2018! We would not have been able to reach this milestone without our dedicated and supportive students, community partners, alumni, staff, and faculty. To kick off the celebration, in April 2017, the Center for Social Concern invited all of our community partners, alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of the CSC to join us and celebrate 25 years of accomplishments, partnerships, and engagement with our community! The celebration was held during Alumni Weekend on Friday, April 21, 2017, from 4-6pm in the Glass Pavilion, Levering Hall. Read more about the celebration.
