Biographical / Historical
The Alumni College was established by the Johns Hopkins University Alumni Association in approximately 1973, to provide alumni with travel learning opportunities, better known as "education vacations." Much like alumni travel programs offered at other colleges, lecturers are recruited from the respective institutions to teach on these trips. The earliest courses were initially taught by Hopkins professors at St. Mary's College of Maryland, but subsequent sessions featured travel to interesting destinations.
