As an institution dedicated to training tomorrow’s leaders, Johns Hopkins SAIS greatly benefits from the broad diversity of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences among our students, faculty, staff and alumni. We take pride in our commitment to respect the dignity and equality of all humans. And we know our dedication to diversity and inclusion attracts talent from around the globe and makes our community stronger. In signing the Pride Pledge, I want to underscore my personal commitment to this vital principle.
