Living Jesuit Values

Georgetown lives its Catholic and Jesuit tradition

Jesuits have played a significant role in the growth and evolution of Georgetown into a global research university deeply rooted in the Catholic faith. Georgetown embraces the principles of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, by educating men and women to serve others in the world and providing opportunities for intellectual, spiritual and moral growth.  This identity thrives today in many academic, social justice and faith-based programs on campus.
