The Whole Person

You’re more than a mind. You’re an individual with unique talents, dreams, and passions. Our long-held Jesuit tradition of cura personalis means a profound care and responsibility for one another, attentive to each person’s circumstances and concerns and gifts.

“Because of Georgetown’s roots in Jesuit teaching, the curriculum helped us think about ethics when we were making policy — what sort of policy choices would advantage or disadvantage one group over the other. Cold, hard data alone does not always tell you what to do for the greater good.”

“I can’t imagine any other school where professors would’ve taken the time to mentor me, to help me believe in myself, to help me work through projects and answer my questions.”

“I teach this class in the way that I do because it’s Georgetown, and I think it’s a unique fit to Georgetown students, who are concerned about educating the whole person and the relationship between wellness and education and performance.”
