Whether in support of students, schools, communities or populations, education is a calling. By joining the Johns Hopkins School of Education, you’ll do more than pursue a rewarding career. You’ll unite with other leaders in a common cause.

Johns Hopkins University’s new Center for Safe and Healthy Schools is taking on the complex, urgent issue of school safety with comprehensive, evidence-based solutions focused on student well-being, safety and learning success. At its core, our work is driven by the belief that all students deserve to go to school in safe and healthy environments where they can learn and thrive.

Led by the university’s School of Education, we have brought together top faculty from across our university system – from education, public health, engineering, arts and sciences, nursing and medicine– to collectively apply their expertise around evidence-based practices, programs, tools and policies integral to safe and healthy school environments.

Through our work, we will strive to move siloed conversations about pressing issues such as suicide, trauma, depression, bullying and gun violence into a more holistic consideration about how we, as a nation, can make schools safer.

Academics

Our innovative academic programs will recognize the complex factors involved in ensuring that schools are safe learning environments where students can thrive. The Center will draw on the expertise and ongoing work of our team to provide evidence-based information and recommendations to inform national dialogue, and most importantly, catalyze action around the policies and practices that research shows support safe and healthy schools.

Research

The research tells us that to truly make schools safer, we must approach the challenges holistically. We will build on our knowledge and tap our deep bench of experts across a wide range of key school safety issues to lead this collaborative effort and design effective, evidence-based solutions for districts and schools. Together, we will explore three areas of research that are fundamental to creating safe and healthy learning environments for all students: health and wellness, schools and community engagement; and school security and technology.

Resources

The Center shares actionable research, best practices, tools and resources that can be used by districts and schools nationwide. Our work empowers policymakers to make evidence-informed decisions, school leaders, teachers and staff to effectively teach and care for students, advocate for what they need to feel and be safe; and communities to cultivate safe and healthy schools and advocate for what they need to feel and be safe.
