About Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins University was the first research university in the United States. Founded in 1876, it was an entirely new educational enterprise. Its aim was not only to advance students' knowledge, but also to advance human knowledge generally, through discovery and scholarship. The university's emphasis on both learning and research—and on how each complements the other—revolutionized U.S. higher education. Today, Johns Hopkins has ventured from its home in Baltimore to countries throughout the world—China, Italy and Singapore, among many others. It remains a world leader in teaching and discovery. Please explore our university. We hope you'll discover something for yourself.
