SOURCE Community Council

Representatives from our partnering community-based organizations (CBOs) provide information, guidance, advice and support to SOURCE.


Advice given by the CBOs could impact policy development, recruitment ideas, academic linkages and more. The council serves as a brainstorming group, or think tank, to address issues and concerns, and to create ideas and strategies to carry out the work of the center.

SOURCE’s Community Council is an integral component to SOURCE’s leadership committees. Serving on SOURCE’s Community Council is an excellent way to learn more about the wide range of services and recruitment efforts offered through SOURCE, the community engagement and service-learning center for the JHU health professional schools. The council serves in the following capacities:

*Note: Recruitment for new Council members is conducted during the spring each year. The next application cycle will open in 2022.
