Thank you Johns Hopkins University
America's first research university:
"What are we aiming at?"
In 140 years, we haven't strayed from that vision. This is still a destination for excellent, ambitious scholars and a world leader in teaching and research.
That's the question our university's first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, asked at his inauguration in 1876. What is this place all about, exactly? His answer:
"The encouragement of research . . . and the advancement of individual scholars, who by their excellence will advance the sciences they pursue, and the society where they dwell."
- The nation's leader in federal research and development funding every year since 1979
