We can’t stress this enough: Homewood is your home. 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 globe, 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 leadership and engagement, campus programming, diversity initiatives, creative arts, and student support. In fact, if it’s not happening in a classroom, there’s a good chance we might be involved:

While COVID-19 continues to challenge us to adjust some of the student experiences on campus, our teams are poised to support as you navigate your time on campus and in Baltimore. Please continue to follow all public health guidelines and JHU expectations as outlined in our policies and on our university COVID information website.

The Office of the Dean of Student Life’s Student Sponsorship Initiative awards eligible students a reimbursement of up to $400 for events that occur prior to June 1 or after June 30 of any given academic year. The funding is on a first come, first served basis and is accessible as long as the funds are available.

**UPDATE**: The applications closed on February 7, 2022 – at this time, all funds have been allocated. New round of applications will go live in late August.
