We can’t stress this enough: Homewood {will eventually} be your home. While COVID-19 has upended our typical student experience on-campus, our teams are poised to support you from wherever you are across the globe.

You might have chosen Johns Hopkins University for the academics, but it’s everything surrounding that—the leadership experiences you’ll build in student organizations, the life skills you gain from living and socializing with others from across the world in residence halls, and the creative outlets that you’ll pursue—that will really shape your experience here.

The Office of the Dean of Student Life aims to cultivate an inclusive and healthy community that fosters growth, exploration, and engagement. We oversee student involvement, campus programming, diversity initiatives, creative arts, and residential life. In fact, if it’s not happening in a classroom, there’s a good chance we might be involved:

  • Diversity and Inclusion provide opportunities for leadership development, Religious and Spiritual Life, and resources for our Multicultural and LGBTQ communities and supporters, among other things.
  • Our teams in Residential Life ensure that students living on campus find their people, learn and grow with roommates and peers, and socially and civically engage with our communities.
  • Our Student Outreach and Support team provides support and assistance, including interventions, advocacy, referrals, and follow-up services for students who are experiencing significant difficulties.
  • Our Student/Community Liaison supports students in their successful transition from dorm living to becoming positive members of our surrounding communities.
  • We also help enforce campus judicial policies, including ones covering sexual violence, academic misconduct, and others.
