Angelina Jolie will reportedly make a visit at the prestigious Georgetown University to teach a class. Earlier this year, Jolie signed on to teach at the London School of Economics for the fall. Now she will do the same at its sister school, Georgetown University, in Washington D.C.
Angelina is not just an actress, but a humanitarian and Special Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
According to US Weekly, she states, “It is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict.” Women’s rights is a topic that is close to her heart. She adds, “I am looking forward to teaching and learning from the students, as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
In May, Angelina met with the executive director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, Melanne Verveer. Jolie’s class will discuss women, peace, and security. Students can learn through workshops, lectures, and research. Jolie created the class with former U.K. foreign secretary William Hague. The class is the first of its kind internationally. Jolie and Hague are good friends and worked with each other several times in the past. Hague will also teach at the London School of Economics.

Verveer states, “I was pleased to meet with Angelina Jolie during my recent trip to London on ways we at Georgetown University can continue the collaboration between our sister programs on both sides of the Atlantic.” She adds, “We look forward to welcoming Angelina and former foreign secretary Hague to Georgetown in the future.”
