Beyond Campus

The Johns Hopkins University motto “Veritas vos Liberabit” means “the truth shall set you free”. It dates from Daniel Coit Gilman’s tenure as the first president of the university and his theory of education, which he modeled after German research institutions. In this model, information is not conferred but discovered through one’s own search for intellectual truth via research and independent inquiry. It follows that Johns Hopkins cultivates a learning environment that stretches beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Students are actively encouraged to get involved in research, and the Johns Hopkins faculty and Career Center help students gain firsthand experience in their field through internships in the Baltimore-Washington area and beyond. The Career Center also prepares students to pursue careers in the humanities or to further their education at the graduate level, and student groups and resources in Baltimore offer opportunities for further exploration. At Hopkins, the classroom extends well beyond campus!
