Global Engagement

In our globalizing world nations and individuals are more interconnected and interdependent than ever before. As institutions dedicated to the creation and sharing of knowledge, universities bear a special responsibility to engage the forces of globalization to advance the betterment of humankind.

At Georgetown we exercise this global responsibility in the formation of our students, the inquiry of our faculty, and service to the global common good.

As a Catholic and Jesuit university committed to the principles of care for the whole person (cura personalis) and the promotion of justice, Georgetown forms students with knowledge, skills, and judgment to serve and lead in a globalizing world.
