Equity & Innovation

The Hub for Equity and Innovation in Higher Education and the Red House are two independent and adjacent organizations. We are co-located in our workspace on the edge of Georgetown University's campus, which enables us to work closely on projects that support our shared mission to advance Equity through Innovation at Georgetown University.   

In this collaborative blog space, Equity & Innovation, we'll share descriptions and examples of how we approach the most complex challenges facing higher education. Contributors in this space will include Georgetown faculty, staff, and students, together with other members of our community, as we do in our work

Posts will describe our projects and our processes as integrate experiential modes of learning into the traditional educational model, how we can empower students with the agility of mind and skills necessary for lives of meaning and service in the 21st century, and how we expand access to higher education.


Onboarding posts help orient all who are new to the Red House and its work. Generally, this series will cover current work and initiatives, processes, and introduce people.
