The Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS) supports the Georgetown Learning Initiatives by fostering a culture of innovation, best practices, design support, and expertise in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
Merging world-class education with commitment to the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, care of the whole person, Georgetown is dedicated to educating women and men for others who can connect
their academic experiences with the choices they make in life.
Aligning students' lives in and beyond the classroom, Georgetown is:
Bringing real-life issues into the classroom through readings, guest speakers, class
discussions, projects, and assignments
Pushing students to critically reflect on their lives and make transformative personal
connections between coursework and their experiences
Extending classroom discussion and reflection into community-based work
Creating citizens of the world whose educations and reflective judgment inform the way
they live their lives
Helping students develop empathy for difference and the capacity for civil dialogue
