The Hopkins-Nanjing Council

The Hopkins-Nanjing Council serves as a critical source of advice and counsel to the dean in setting the overall course for the school’s partnership with Nanjing University. Membership is international in scope and is comprised of alumni, business and public sector leaders, and community members who share a commitment to the peaceful integration of China into the global system through education. Members serve as ambassadors for the Hopkins-Nanjing Center, promoting its programs to external constituencies and working with the HNC’s leadership to ensure its strength and advancement.
