One University

The urgent problems of our society are not confined to distinct silos and neither will be the solutions we devise.

From its earliest days, Johns Hopkins has been a place of remarkable, organic collaboration.  The driving vision of our scholars historically has lifted research above and across disciplinary silos.  In honoring this tradition of innovation and entrepreneurship, Johns Hopkins seeks to remove the barriers that stand in the way of interdisciplinary scholarship and research.  We aim to foster collaboration that respects the discipline of the disciplines, while promoting the cross-pollination of ideas and energies that will spark the discoveries of tomorrow and the solutions to the world’s most complex problems.
