The new accelerated baccalaureate students got their first glimpse of life at Hopkins during accepted-students day on March 3 and began their courses in June. Already this class is setting records: with 32 percent of the students representing a minority ethnicity, they’re the most ethnically diverse class in the School’s history. In addition, 20 international students come to the School from 18 different countries, and another 15 students are Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows representing 15 different countries.
“Diversity is one of the core values of the School,” noted Associate Dean for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs Nancy Davis Griffin. “The Accelerated 2013 class continues to enrich the academic culture at Hopkins.”
