Georgetown University is the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit university and we have a deep history of education in the Jesuit tradition. Our commitment to the common good--to engaging productively and positively with our communities locally and globally--is at the heart of this tradition.

The Office of Community Engagement helps to fulfill Georgetown's commitment to the common good in the District of Columbia and the metropolitan region. The office supports the university’s growth and economic development efforts, including master planning; facilitates and develops relationships with community organizations, local governments, and civic organizations; supports community-based research and scholarship; and strengthens the university’s partnership with our neighbors.
