Inclusion is in our DNA

Inclusion is in our DNA | Johns Hopkins Founding Letter

Nearly a century and a half ago, our founder, Mr. Johns Hopkins, wrote a letter in which he established his vision for and values of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Those values – respect, dignity, integrity, inclusion, excellence, and diversity – have withstood the test of time and still ring true today. They continue to provide us with inspiration and direction.

We are Johns Hopkins Medicine. We must continue to remain committed to our founding values and stand together to support each other.
