Welcome to the McCourt School Policy Innovation Lab.

We are an initiative of the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University, created in 2015 to combine the talents of the DC and Georgetown communities to tackle urgent and emerging issues in the region.  Our aim is to provide an innovative, community-based framework and venue for policy students to work collectively and in partnership with community groups, leaders, and residents in developing forward-thinking and pioneering policy solutions to local issues.
