McCourt Ambassadors

The best part of the MIDP program has been being academically challenged in a community of passionate and experienced professionals. Being challenged means that there is also a lot of active growth and it is exciting to see how much I have learned since the beginning of the program and how much I will continue learning.

I chose McCourt for its robust curriculum and its commitment to cultivating leaders who are not only skilled in policy analysis but also deeply aware of the societal impacts of their work. The school’s location in Washington D.C. offers unparalleled opportunities for engaging with influential policy makers and organizations.

The McCourt community’s focus on peer-to-peer learning and the commitment to building a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community stood out as a hallmark of the McCourt experience. In addition, being in the heart of where all of the political action is provides firsthand access to the dynamic landscape of policy formulation and implementation.

Commitment to Inclusion

Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy aspires to become the most inclusive public policy school in the nation. Inclusivity is a core value at McCourt because public policies are more effective when our political and policy decision makers reflect the perspectives and lived experience of the communities they serve, and being able to work across differences is a fundamental skill we seek to cultivate.
