Our approach to student programs at the Berkley Center is grounded in the Jesuit value of cura personalis (care for the whole person), a central tenet of the Georgetown University education. Programs are animated by the center’s mission of bringing together scholars, practitioners, policymakers, and students to seek a more just and peaceful world by deepening knowledge and solving problems at the intersection of religion and global affairs. Shaping our student engagement mission is the Doyle Engaging Difference Program, which is now in its second decade. The program began with a generous gift and accompanying vision from William J. Doyle (C’72, former chair of the Georgetown University Board of Directors) to see Georgetown University lead the way in creating learning spaces that equip Hoyas to authentically and constructively engage differences, ultimately enabling them to repair communities at the local, national, and global levels.
The following report highlights our contributions to the Doyle Program as part of our collaboration with the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship during the 2020-2021 academic year, as well as our Religion, Ethics, and World Affairs minor and the Education and Social Justice Project, a collaboration with the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service.
