Our Mission

To frame the terms, design the systems, critique the contours, provide the guide rails, and imagine the future of digital technologies and ethics for the betterment of humanity.

Our Approach

An academic community dedicated to creating and communicating knowledge, Georgetown is a Catholic and Jesuit, student-centered research university with a global scope and scale. Once core staff are in place, we will contribute to the field of digital ethics by constructing theory, educational content, and practical guidance to practitioners. We will expand the work already occurring at Georgetown on the interface between computer science and regulatory design; devise and build out course content; and convene key leaders in the information, defense, and regulatory sectors to shape and influence strategy.
