November/ December 2014 Newsletter


Students, Parents, and Members of the Georgetown McDonough Community,

As we approach the holiday season, I am especially grateful for our faculty, staff, parents, and alumni who give so generously of their time to support our initiatives.

Thanks to the hard work of the Georgetown McDonough community, our new programs are thriving. We are in the fifth year of the First Year Seminar; fourth year of the Entrepreneurship Fellows Program; third year of the Global Summer Program in Barcelona; second year of the Social Internship Program in Nicaragua; and first year of the new McDonough Office of Professional Development (MOPD). In addition, we plan to launch a program in Strategic Management: An Asian Perspective in Hong Kong next summer.

As we educate our future global leaders, I am reminded of the words of Chris Lowney in Heroic Leadership on the importance of:

  • Understanding [our] strengths, weaknesses, values, and worldview;
  • Confidently innovating and adapting to embrace a changing world;
  • Engaging others with a positive, loving attitude; and
  • Energizing others through heroic ambitions.

Here at McDonough, we are fortunate to be part of an inclusive community that supports the ideals of a Jesuit education and appreciates the importance of embracing change with a positive perspective.

We wish you and your family a safe and merry holiday!

Warm Regards,

Norean R. Sharpe, Ph.D.
Senior Associate Dean
Director of Undergraduate Programs
