The Center for Social Concern is the student life office dedicated to community service and civic engagement and is under the umbrella of Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood Student Affairs (HSA). Other HSA student life divisions include The Office of Student Activities, the Office of Multi-cultural Affairs, The Interfaith Center, The Office of Greek Life, and the Homewood Arts Program.
The Center for Social Concern emphasizes the value of service with others, rather than the commonly accepted concept of service to others. The volunteer and client 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.
Specifically, the CSC:
In summer 2009, CSC's main facility moved from Levering Hall to 3103 North Charles Street (called the Center for Social Concern Building). This three story row home houses all of CSC's programs and student services, except its Johns Hopkins University Tutorial Project.
The Johns Hopkins Tutorial Project is located on the second floor of Levering Hall. This location is unique in that the main area of the space contains an incredible floor-to-ceiling mural done by Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D. "The Apocalypse" was commissioned in 1968 by Dr. Chester Wickwire, then-Chaplain of the Johns Hopkins University.
