JHU is committed to recruiting and hiring U.S. military veterans and Guard and Reserve members. We take seriously our responsibility to support these men and women as they transition from uniformed service to civilian life.

We have developed a broad strategy to help our heroes and their families through education, employment, and wellness that will position them for success.
