About Johns Hopkins University

The university takes its name from 19th-century Maryland philanthropist Johns Hopkins, an entrepreneur and abolitionist with Quaker roots who believed in improving public health and education in Baltimore and beyond.

Johns Hopkins University opened in 1876 and was the nation’s first research university. Nearly 140 years later, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research, with nine academic divisions. Distinguished professors mentor students in the arts and music, humanities, social and natural sciences, engineering, international studies, education, business, and the health professions.
