Diversity at Hopkins

Central to the School’s mission and essential to our definition of ourselves we say that Hopkins is “a community of civility and learning, one that seeks to educate students from diverse backgrounds to a full measure of their talents and humanity.” It would simplify matters if diversity were easy to define, but it isn’t. The meaning of diversity has changed throughout the course of Hopkins’ long history and it remains a changeable and multi-layered idea, since each individual is identified by a number of traits – age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic position, to name only a few. Fundamentally, Hopkins is most likely to fulfill its mission when it is full of students who can enlarge the understanding of other students, in part because of the diverse experiences and perspectives they bring. While that kind of diversity is sometimes hard to measure, it is essential to Hopkins today and guides us in our quest for an ever more talented and diverse community of learners.
