The Database details Georgetown University’s community engagements and partnerships in Washington, DC. It includes service and volunteer projects, research targeted to our local communities, direct support to organizations, and public programming. Our goal is to create a coherent and transparent picture for both internal and external partners. We aim to facilitate strong reciprocal partnerships with organizations focused on community development and social change in the following areas: health (access and equity), environment, economic justice, arts and education. The Community Engagement Database reflects Georgetown’s unique integration of teaching, research, and service as “contemplatives in action” pursuing social justice.

Our hope is for faculty and staff to use the database to identify existing community engagements and partners to leverage (or avoid duplication) in order to advance community-based learning, other projects, and research, enhancing overall community impact. To that end, it will be used to identify Georgetown faculty and staff for potential collaboration on community-based learning and other projects. The database will help faculty and staff identify trends (and gaps) in existing engagements by issue area, geography, population served, project funder, Georgetown division, and other dimensions that can be leveraged to obtain additional funding by current or new funders. Lastly, the database (and ideally the map) will enable us to present a comprehensive picture of Georgetown’s extensive community engagement work that can be shared with many audiences including students and prospective students, faculty, staff, community members, city leaders, funders, and others in the higher education community.
