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.
The Center for Social Concern has temporarily relocated to the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) at 3003 N. Charles St Suite 100 while our building is getting freshened up. We hope to be back at 3103 N. Charles in time to welcome students in the Fall. Many thanks to OMA for taking us in. All contact information will remain the same!
