Georgetown University has significant academic and outreach relationships in Africa.

Across schools and departments, Georgetown faculty are involved in multidisciplinary research and teaching on Africa's history, development, politics, and culture. The African Studies Program, the Center for Global Health Practice and Impact, and the Georgetown University Initiative on Innovation, Development and Evaluation are hubs for much of this activity. The university’s Washington, DC, location facilitates academic and cultural exchanges with Georgetown’s African partners, as does the presence of the World Bank and other leading international organizations.
