REIMAGINING GEORGETOWN’S SUSTAINABLE FUTURE INCLUDES ‘DOING MORE GOOD’

During strategic planning sessions in advance of Earth Day, faculty, university community members, students, and sustainability experts explored ways to deepen alignment between Georgetown’s sustainability efforts, its core mission and Jesuit tradition, and Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si.

“The pope has asked Jesuit universities in particular to embody the teachings of Laudato Si,” said Eugenie Dieck, vice president of strategy at Georgetown. “So he’s looking to us and to other Jesuit universities to really think about how we incorporate the teachings into our living, into our teaching, into our research, into our work and into our outreach.”
