Diversity and Inclusion

Johns Hopkins University and the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) are deeply committed to the dignity and equality of all persons—inclusive of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability, religion, military status, or political beliefs.

By delivering thought-provoking programming in collaboration with the school's Diversity Council and Student Diversity Coalition, elevating new perspectives on campus, and employing recruitment strategies aimed at increasing the diversity of faculty, staff, and students, Johns Hopkins SAIS aims to cultivate a community where everyone feels welcome and valued.

Fostering an environment of respect and inclusion is central to the mission of the school and its commitment to celebrating the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and lifestyles of its students, faculty, and staff.

To learn more about the university’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, visit the Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion webpage.

This committee is named in honor of the late George Crowell, a beloved administrator at Johns Hopkins SAIS.
