The Center for Social Concern 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.

Johns Hopkins receives national recognition for community service efforts

Johns Hopkins University is among hundreds of colleges and universities recently recognized by the Corporation for National & Community Service for its role in addressing community challenges through service.

The President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, launched in 2006, annually recognizes institutions of higher education that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful, measurable outcomes in communities through service. Johns Hopkins was recognized for the first time this year in the General Community Service category. Click here to continue reading this article in The Hub!

JHU’s Annual President’s Day of Service (PDOS):

PDOS, launched in 2009 by our 14th President of the University, President Ron Daniels, brings all of Hopkins’ various campuses, including alumni, together for a single day of community service, with service projects focusing on issues of city beautification, food justice, and interpersonal interaction. Some goals of PDOS are to help our students meet new people, learn about community projects, and do the city of Baltimore, our home, a service.
