Georgetown University Buddhist and Silk Road Studies Initiative

The Georgetown University Buddhist and Silk Road Studies Initiative promotes teaching, learning, research, and public engagement on Buddhist traditions and the Silk Road at local, national, and international levels. At Georgetown, we support and enhance teaching and research in Buddhist Studies and the Silk Road at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We engage in community outreach through the Buddhist and Silk Road Studies lecture series and through shared events with our partners and stakeholders.
