Conducting groundbreaking research to address pressing issues is one of the most critical activities of the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Health Schools.

The research tells us that to truly make schools safer, we must approach the challenges holistically. With headquarters in the Johns Hopkins School of Education, the Center for Safe and Healthy Schools incorporates research from across the university’s nine divisions. We tap a deep bench of experts from a wide range of key school safety issues to lead this collaborative effort and design effective, evidence-based solutions for districts and schools.

Center for Safe and Healthy Schools Seed Grant Program

In 2019, the winners of the inaugural Center for Safe and Healthy Schools Seed Grant Program were chosen. Five interdisciplinary teams were awarded $10,000 each to conduct research related to safe schools in the areas of health and wellness, and schools and community engagement. These research teams represented several JHU divisions including the School of Education, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and experts outside of Johns Hopkins.
