Webinar Series for International Students and Alumni

At Georgetown and other universities the shift to online learning this semester poses multiple challenges—not least the maintenance of a vibrant sense of community in the absence of face-to-face interaction. The challenge of remaining connected can be especially daunting for international students and alumni in different parts of the world.

In order to foster community and to benefit from the knowledge and perspectives of our more than 3,000 international undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and alumni, Georgetown is organizing a webinar series with faculty and other experts on key global issues. The webinars will be hosted by members of the Georgetown University Board of Regents.

International Georgetown students and alumni are invited to RSVP for any of the webinars below. The conversations will be archived and shared with the wider university community.
