AGHI Director Bill Egginton joined JHU staff, faculty, and students to celebrate the grand opening of the new Imagine Center for for Integrative Learning and Life Design. This new center—dedicated to helping students in their exploration of future careers, lifestyles, and work experiences—opened its doors with balloons and streamers on November 14, cheered by administrators and staff who have been working on this initiative since at least 2018.
Professor Egginton joined colleagues to speak about the potential avenues students might take to discover out where their educational and personal training can lead.
The new Center, located on the north side of campus at 113 W. University Drive, offers mixed offices as well as discussion and work areas for students to learn more about mentoring, research, guidance, and entrepreneurship opportunities. As reported by Michelle Limpe and Aashi Mendpara in the Johns Hopkins News-Letter, Life Design assistant director Ashley Schantz celebrated the new space: “Presence is invaluable,” she said. “Having a building where students can make their own and find space to connect with their peers but also have a constant presence of curiosity and ideation around what is important to you, how you can serve your community and ways you can best apply your education is the epitome of what we hope higher education is.”
