Highlights from November 19, 2013

On November 19, alumni, parents, and friends came together for fun, networking, and a fascinating glimpse into Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins.

The event featured a lively discussion on the role of the university as a catalyst for revitalizing America's cities and schools by Katherine S. Newman, PhD, the James B. Knapp Dean of the Krieger School and an expert on poverty and working poor, and David W. Andrews, PhD, dean of the university's School of Education who has dedicated his career to improving academic and behavioral outcomes for at-risk children and youth.

Rising to the Challenge: The Campaign for Johns Hopkins is an effort to raise $4.5 billion, primarily to support students, faculty, and research and interdisciplinary solutions to some of humanity's most important problems. The campaign, supporting both Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine, was publicly launched in May 2013 and is targeted for completion in 2017.
