Public Service & Social Concern Affinity Group


Many members of the Hopkins community are engaged in public service efforts and activities of social concern every day. For some, it may be the focus of their professional life, for others it is something they do in their free time. Either way, what’s important is that these individuals are passionate about bettering your local and global community.
We are building a new Affinity Engagement Group focused on public service/social concern, drawing those in the Hopkins community together to create, strengthen, and connect existing networks. If public service, volunteer work and social policy are subjects YOU are passionate about, please join our efforts. Questions, please contact Elena Thompson at
