Situated within JHU Student Affairs, the Center for Social Concern (CSC) focuses on student development through community engagement. The CSC collaborates with Baltimore City organizations, Hopkins Faculty, and other Campus Partners to curate community-based programming that helps equip our students to be engaged and responsible members of their community.
The CSC will educate and prepare Hopkins students to be active citizens within their current and future communities
An Active Citizen is someone who prioritizes the community in their life choices
The CSC’s ultimate goal is to inspire our students to become active citizens. In order to work towards this goal, the CSC utilizes a model of Education, Action, and Reflection. By providing educational trainings, coordinating engagement opportunities within Baltimore City, and facilitating spaces for critical reflection, the CSC cultivates students who prioritize community in their values and life choices.
The CSC works with the Office of Leadership Engagement and Experiential Development and the student-run Allocations and Recognition Commission to ensure that CSC student organizations have the support to effectively operate and engage with the Baltimore community.
