Reimagining Ethics, Policy, and Governance for the Digital Age.

The Georgetown Initiative on Tech & Society 

Who We Are

We are a dynamic, university-wide collaboration between Georgetown’s nine schools, three D.C. campuses, and diverse centers and institutes.

Our Mission

We train the next generation to understand technology’s complex impact on society — and develop innovative solutions at the intersection of ethics, policy, and governance.

Our Approach

Together, we are integrating ethics and governance into technical fields, innovating policy for responsible progress, and deepening the public conversation about the world we want to build.


We offer unique interdisciplinary opportunities for Georgetown students to gain both the technical knowledge and strong ethical and policy foundation necessary to understand and influence technology’s impact on a morally complex world.
