Eager to get involved? Take your pick from a wide variety of engagement opportunities. Students are encouraged to participate in events on-campus, in Baltimore, and around the world! Most of the events are free to students or are provided as an affordable cost. 

Recognized student organizations are integral to the educational process at the School of Nursing and Johns Hopkins University. As a student at the School of Nursing you have access to all of the events and student organizations at Johns Hopkins University.

Donation drive policy

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and SOURCE permit five major donation drives per year to support outside needs of SOURCE partnering community-based organizations in Baltimore. These drives are coordinated by SOURCE (the community engagement and service-learning center for the JH Schools of Nursing, Public Health, and Medicine) and include a campus-wide food drive, toiletry drive and other collections throughout the year.

This practice ensures the validity and success of these types of events each year, and frees the School’s hallways and common spaces for the numerous alumni and friends visiting the School, as well as conferences, speakers, and receptions that occur on school premises on a daily basis. As proponents of advocacy, volunteerism, donating and service with community, we seek to maximize our efforts and integrity in activities with the community.

Any student, student group or department wishing to organize, coordinate or co-sponsor a donation drive must first contact SON Student Affairs,, and SOURCE at 410-955-3880 or SOURCE can provide additional support, as well as ensure that drives do not overlap with one another. Those interested in organizing a donation drive can coordinate directly with SOURCE.
