About the School

Johns Hopkins University was the first research university in the U.S., founded in 1876 to educate students and advance human knowledge through discovery and scholarship. Students come to Johns Hopkins to continue this rich tradition of engaging in active thinking; here, they are not passive learners but involved participants in a process of investigation that challenges them to set their sights high and gives them the knowledge to ascend those new heights.

Today, Johns Hopkins includes nine academic and research divisions, and numerous centers, institutes, and affiliated entities. The Johns Hopkins institutions have an international reputation for excellence in education, research, and health care. For 30 years, Johns Hopkins University has topped the nation in spending on scientific and medical research, now attracting more than $1.5 billion in research grants annually and sharing its inventions and discoveries with businesses, many in Maryland, through nearly 750 technology-transfer licenses.
