Mission, Vision & Strategy


Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Qatar (SFS-Q) is dedicated to fulfilling Georgetown University’s mission of promoting intellectual, ethical and spiritual understanding through serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures and beliefs. Embodying this spirit of the University, Georgetown’s Qatar campus undertakes education, research and service in order to advance knowledge and provide students and the community with a holistic educational experience that produces global citizens committed to the service of humankind. We demonstrate the values of Georgetown University; seek to build upon the world-class reputation of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service; and work with our partner, Qatar Foundation.



Our vision is to be recognized as the leading academic institution for International Affairs in the Middle East by demonstrating unfailing excellence in teaching, research and community outreach.
