About Us

The Francis Project: Hoyas for Human Dignity and Life supports awareness of the Catholic understanding of the culture of life and addresses key human dignity and life issues in ways appropriate to our student community. The Francis Project is housed under Student Affairs and receives support from the Office of Mission and Ministry. It engages students through events, outreach, education, and by increasing the visibility of pro-dignity student groups on campus.

The Francis Project takes its name and its inspiration from Pope Francis and fills a need on campus to recognize the value of each moment and situation of human life, in all of its messiness. Georgetown has a wide range of student groups that address human dignity and life issues; The Francis Project hopes to support these groups and address life issues in creative ways on campus.
