The Hopkins Alumni Representatives Council (HARC)

HARC is a group of dedicated alumni who support the recruitment efforts of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

The Hopkins Alumni Representatives Council (HARC) allows trained alumni volunteers to be regularly involved in recruiting efforts being implemented domestically and abroad. The goal of HARC is to provide alumni who are passionate about supporting our admissions efforts and helping prospective students throughout their college search with the opportunity to partner with us in our recruiting efforts and be strong ambassadors of Johns Hopkins University.

Interested in sharing your Hopkins experience with prospective students?

Selected members will receive specialized training and will be expected to join admissions representatives at sessions and college fairs around the country and world.

Requirements to be a HARC member include: securing a nomination for the position, comfort with public speaking, willingness to participate in regular training, availability to attend two or more events with admissions representatives, and enthusiasm for sharing your Hopkins experience. Please note that HARC membership requires a two-year commitment, however we will accept nominations for new HARC members annually.

How to be considered for HARC

Alumni members of HARC will be chosen from nominations submitted by staff or faculty in any JHU Homewood department. Interested alumni may request a nomination from any staff member at Homewood to initiate the process; the nominator should be someone you know or worked closely with as a student at Hopkins and can provide helpful information about why you are a great choice for the committee.

For those alums selected, we will be in touch with more information about the program and invite them to apply. The HARC selection committee meets in July. As such, nominees will not hear from us until late July.

If you have questions about HARC requirements or the nomination, please reach out to the program coordinators via email.

"Hopkins classes challenged me to develop solutions for ongoing public health problems, to which there is no single, correct answer. Moreover, having the Hopkins name attached to my resume gave me the opportunity to secure an internship that exposed me to the realities of public health in practice."
