About the Initiative

Over the course of 2015 and 2016, Georgetown University's Global Futures Initiative invited faculty and students to address four issues critical to the future of humanity: development, governance, security, and the environment. The initiative drew on Georgetown’s distinctive character—its strengths across academic disciplines, its Catholic and Jesuit identity, and its presence in Washington, D.C.—to develop the model of a global university in service to the wider world.
