Initiative Director John Carr shares Catholic Social Thought and its applications with students as an adjunct professor in the Department of Theology.
Integrating Catholic Social Thought into the life and work of the university is a key component of the Initiative’s mission. The Initiative pursues this mission by engaging students through courses and programs and by collaborating with a range of related academic units.
“Georgetown University’s Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life enables our community to engage ever more deeply the values that animate the mission of our university—strengthening our collective commitment to the common good. I am grateful to John Carr for his outstanding leadership in sharing the message of Catholic Social Teaching and the vision of Pope Francis and for his role in finding new ways to bring the extraordinary resources of our faith tradition to the forefront of public dialogue and to young people across our community.” - President John J. DeGioia
