It's our time to define the Georgetown of the future ... We want to identify creative ways—new packages, new educational programs—that use our creativity to address some of these challenges.

-Provost Robert M. Groves

The Designing the Future(s) Initiative’s curricular experiments are reimagining what a Georgetown education could be.

The site of this work is the Red House, a creative incubator space for faculty and staff partnering with Designing the Future(s) to spin out new ideas that have the potential to deepen student learning and improve the teaching experience of faculty while reinventing the university’s model.
