Welcome to Johns Hopkins. As president of this great university, it’s been my tremendous privilege to witness, every day, the joy and promise of discovery.
Johns Hopkins is the nation’s first research university, a place where we explore fundamental questions of meaning, pursue creative achievement, and advance basic and applied research. And we do so joined together in common service to the world of knowledge and the betterment of humanity.
These traditions reflect, more than anything, a culture that gives pride of place to freedom of thought, to collegiality and discovery, and to the relentless pursuit of excellence.
