Johns Hopkins SAIS graduates at commencement

Shaping the world one graduate at a time.

There are many ways for you to get involved today such as staying connected with each other through Johns Hopkins SAIS-specific clubs and the Johns Hopkins University Alumni Association.

Ways to Volunteer

  • Help us increase social media activity by using #SAISAlum
  • Sign up to receive the SAIS Alumni Connect e-newsletter
  • Reach out to the alumni serving as the primary point of contact (POC) in your region or become a POC by contacting [email protected]
  • Make a gift!
  • Talk about the merits of Johns Hopkins SAIS to prospective students and refer them to the Admissions Team via our Prospect Referral Form.
  • Call or offer to have meetings with admitted students in the spring to encourage them to attend
  • Attend a graduate school fair and interact with prospective students
  • Teach a skills development course

  • Join the school's mentoring initiatives: Start mentoring students by activating your profile on JHU’s OneHop Mentoring platform. After creating your profile, you will join our community of several thousand alumni mentors who are available for JHU students to search by filters like location, industry of expertise, organization, etc. The registration process will allow you to set limits on how frequently you can be contacted and for what purposes. When the school's Global Careers Office launches the next round of the more formal Long-Term Mentoring Program, you and our other alumni on the platform will automatically receive an invite with instructions via the OneHop platform.
  • Partner with Global Careers and the Office of Co-Curricular and Experiential Learning (CCEL) to offer internship and practicum opportunities or career treks at your organization, provide workshops to students, and more.  
  • Initiate an alumni event in your region
  • Nominate fellow alumni for awards
  • Connect with the larger JHU Alumni Association
  • Volunteer for a community service project through the Rising to the Challenge Campaign
  • Volunteer for a community service project through Johns Hopkins in Action (JHiA)
