Student Affairs Statement on Inclusion, Community, and Excellence
At Johns Hopkins, we strive to be a model of a pluralistic society in which we acknowledge, embrace, and engage diverse identities, perspectives, and experiences. We seek to build and buttress an inclusive intellectual and physical environment to ensure that all members of our community know with certainty that they belong at Johns Hopkins and we aspire to equitably share the benefits and burdens of dismantling persistent systemic barriers to individual and communal success.
Hopkins Student Affairs is committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive community for students, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds:
- We believe that diversity is inherent to excellence and that the broad diversity of talents, cultures, identities, and experiences of our community members are core to our ability to deliver exceptional student development and learning experiences.
- We strive to support a student experience where academic, leadership, and community engagement opportunities spur discovery and learning; encourage a respect for and valuing of the perspectives of others; and foster a sense of belonging and connection across our student, broader university, and Baltimore community.
- We strive to create a learning environment where our students feel invited to learn from, and contribute to the learning of others through the sharing and honoring of each other’s perspectives, identities, cultures, talents, and experiences.
