Faculty

Welcome to Georgetown’s Global Hospitality Leadership program.

Hospitality is the service of welcoming guests authentically through altruism. This is embedded in Georgetown’s Jesuit values of cura personalis: care for the entire person by having respect for and attending to the needs of each person and his or her individual circumstances.

At Georgetown, our mission centers on excellence by developing the whole person. You will be challenged to think critically and stretch your leadership skills. In the classroom, you’ll take part in real-world discussions in a collaborative environment, led by a faculty of industry professionals and subject matter experts. Like the hospitality industry, our program is both culturally and ethnically diverse, giving you the opportunity to interact with faculty and students from all walks of life.

I look forward to having you join us on this journey of deeper learning and understanding in the global city of Washington, D.C. I am confident you will leave our program ready to lead with purpose in the field of hospitality.

With warm regards,

Erinn Tucker, Ph.D.
Faculty Director and Associate Professor of the Practice
