Sheridan Libraries Freshman Fellows: Coeducation at Johns Hopkins

Sheridan Libraries Freshman Fellows: Coeducation at Johns Hopkins header image

Freshman Fellows is a signature academic opportunity offered by the Sheridan Libraries to introduce students to primary source research. Established in 2016, the program exposes students to primary source collections early in their college career by pairing four Fellows with four curators on individual research projects.

This session will be presented by Jade Robinson. Jade is currently majoring in Neuroscience and Psychology with a minor in Spanish for the Professions. Jade also sings in the Melanotes, JHU’s acapella group that focuses on black artists, and is an ambassador for the JHU Chapter of The Women’s Network! 

This presentation will detail the journey to coeducation at Johns Hopkins, as well as how women were treated by Johns Hopkins administration and the campus environment as a whole. Furthermore, Jade will explore the life of Rachel Carson, once a graduate student at Hopkins, and how her education here aided her in essentially birthing the environmentalist movement and shaping how society interacts with the natural world.
