About Us

The Center for Public & Nonprofit Leadership at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy is a leading education, research and training center dedicated to the development of public, nonprofit and philanthropic leadership.

Our programs for students, practitioners and policymakers increase their capacity to work across organizations, communities and sectors to address public needs, tackle public problems and, above all, promote the public good.

The Center’s work is enhanced by our opportunities for practitioners and scholars to serve as our Waldemar A. Nielsen Chair in Philanthropy, Veterans Nonprofit Leadership Initiative Fellows and Visiting Practitioners.

Graduate students develop their skills by performing research and policy analysis through our Pablo Eisenberg Public Interest Fellowships, Nielsen research assistantships, and Reimagining Service Bank of America Fellowships.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of our funders over the years.
