Government and Community Affairs (GCA) sponsors and hosts a number of community based events throughout the year. 

Community Conversations (Homewood)

Community Conversations has been a Hopkins tradition for over forty-five years and serves as a forum for leadership from the public and private sectors, foundations, non-profits, institutions, the community, and political affiliates to discuss their common interest and goals for Baltimore City and the region. The event is held the first Thursday morning in April and May (Spring Series); and October and November (Fall Series).
