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.
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.

JHU’s Annual PDOS took place on October 11, 2014!
