Introducing the new!

Welcome to our new alumni site!

We are excited to introduce you to our site's new look. In redesigning the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association website, we took advantage of feedback from our alumni, the latest content management technologies, and current Johns Hopkins branding guidelines to create a new, more user-friendly experience. This update advances the framework of our site to utilize modern web features such as mobile-responsive design (open the site on your smartphone or simply resize your browser window to see the magic happen) and provides us with advanced tools to inform and connect our alumni.

While the look is certainly different, users of our Alumni Connect portal will also notice some changes in functionality. A driving force behind this upgrade was the desire to consolidate and simplify features such as the Alumni Directory and KnowledgeNet access. This continues the trend started by the launch of our alumni networking site 

Feel free to explore the site to see what's new or read on below for some helpful tips in accessing some of our new features. 

Logging in to the site

Alumni site login

Your alumni services now center around a single site-wide login that can be accessed on our homepage. This login will allow you to access features like Hopkins KnowledgeNet as well as private pages for Alumni Council members. You will see the login form below our rotating featured content. Simply use your JHED ID or email and password to access alumni-only features. 

If this is your first time logging in...

First time login

  2. follow the prompts and choose the appropriate first-time login link (Alumni, Faculty/Staff/Other) or you may choose to reset your password
