In 2017, Amazon triggered a fierce bidding war between hundreds of cities across the country as they positioned themselves to host the corporation’s second headquarters. Every major city in the country responded. Why? The promise of Amazon’s 48,000 new jobs and a golden ticket into the 21st Century information economy spurred cities to act. Few mayors could contain their exuberance and the recently released shortlist includes several sites across metropolitan Washington, D.C. What can Seattle teach us about the relationship between rapidly growing corporations and their host communities? Join us for this candid discussion between Seattle’s chief urban planner and two thought leaders from the real estate industry.

Some of the most urgent health problems facing society are so complex that they transcend what standard medicine can solve. For example, the aging of a population creates not only medical problems, but also economic strains and issues in law and public policy. In another example, biomedical research cannot assume that health issues are homogeneous in society, because disparities exist across the population. Therefore, biomedical researchers should collaborate with sociologists, economists, psychologists, and experts in law, public policy, and many other disciplines.

Georgetown is leading the way in examining complex problems through innovative, interdisciplinary graduate education. This panel will explore groundbreaking learning opportunities afforded through new programs such as the Master’s of Science in Aging & Health program and the Master's in Epidemiology program with a focus on health disparities. Norberto Grzywacz, dean of the Graduate School of the Arts & Sciences, will moderate a panel featuring Provost Robert Groves, Executive Vice President Edward Healton, Distinguished Professor Maxine Weinstein, and Professor Lucile Adams-Campbell.

Missing time spent in Dahlgren Chapel? Join Georgetown on a full tour of the Chapel of St. Ignatius, the home of Roman Catholic liturgies at Seattle University. Learn from Rev. Jerry Cobb, S.J., how architect Steven Holl designed the chapel to evoke ""seven bottles of light in a stone box,"" with each bottle or vessel of light corresponding to a focal aspect of Catholic worship. His concept, ""A Gathering of Different Lights,"" reflects Seattle University's mission and refers to St. Ignatius’ vision of the spiritual life as comprising many interior lights and darknesses, which he called consolations and desolations. Holl's design for the Chapel of St. Ignatius has been recognized by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Come revel in his innovative chromatic design that transforms the chapel into a beacon of multicolored light radiating outward to the campus and city of Seattle.
