Advancing Johns Hopkins University through wise stewardship.

As the University’s chief governing body, the Board of Trustees exercises fiduciary responsibility for advancing Johns Hopkins’ mission and goals in a sustainable manner, through wise stewardship of all of its resources for the common good and for generations to come.

The Board holds a public trust: to guard the University’s integrity, to ensure that it fulfills the purposes for which it was established, and to preserve and augment its physical and financial assets.
