Our founding mission implores us to bring discovery to the world, and that's a charge we take seriously. Hopkins has a proud tradition of leadership in education, research, service, and patient care around the globe, with research and training programs on every continent, more than 450 undergraduate students studying abroad in dozens of countries each year, and more than 193,000 JHU alumni living in 175 countries.
A few examples of our global reach:
- Our School of Advanced International Studies has campuses on three continents and trains the world’s diplomats—more than 130 SAIS graduates have served as international ambassadors.
- Jhpiego, a nonprofit health organization affiliated with the university, has spent 40 years improving the health of women and families in more than 155 developing countries.
- The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health brings together experts from our top-ranked schools of Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing to address pressing global health challenges, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and malnutrition.
From offering pioneering medical and nursing training at Peking Union Medical College Hospital in the 1910s; to creating a graduate-level international relations campus in Bologna, Italy, just 10 years after the end of World War II; to conducting ongoing Antarctic geological research, we continue to bring knowledge to the world.
