The Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering is dedicated to fostering an environment of inclusive excellence.
Inclusive excellence is a philosophical approach to higher education administration and processes that means attending to both the demographic diversity of faculty/students and the need for developing climates and cultures in institutions so that all have a chance to succeed in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine).
