McCourt School of Public Policy

The complex challenges of our world call for coordinated action. The McCourt School is uniquely positioned to respond—fortified by our ethical grounding, our commitment to the common good, the strength of our faculty and students, and our Washington, D.C., location.

Today, we are called to develop rigorously trained, ethically grounded leaders skilled at working across differences to advance the common good. To become the nation’s most inclusive top school of public policy. To deepen our capacity for transformational impact. We are called to be working in concert toward a better world—and uniquely positioned to do so.

We will answer with energy and resources—investing in student access and excellence, faculty expertise, a new home on Georgetown’s Capitol Campus, and the McCourt School’s dynamic centers and institutes.

“We are excited to move to our new home on Georgetown’s Capitol Campus—to be next door to the Law Center and near so many key government institutions. This space will physically unite the McCourt School’s research centers and academic programs, serve as a new platform for innovation and collaboration, and provide a dynamic front door to Georgetown for the policy community.”

—Maria Cancian, dean of Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy, on the university’s new academic building at 125 E Street
