Institute for College Preparation

Georgetown University Institute for College Preparation (ICP) is a pre-college academic enrichment program that provides comprehensive support to District of Columbia area public middle and high school students to empower them to graduate from high school and succeed in college. Georgetown’s ICP adopts students, starting in the 7th grade, from targeted middle schools and supports them through their first year of college. ICP strives not only to educate students in the academic sense, but also to instill confidence and to build a desire for education in students by providing them with highly enriching experiences.

The Lena Landegger Community Service Awards

Living-Learning Communities

The Office of Residence Life has worked with a number of departments and students to create alternative residential experiences. Students have an opportunity to connect the academic and residential experiences around common interest themes through either creating or participating in a Living-Learning Community (LLC) residential program. Although each LLC is different, the programs are driven by a desire for students to take responsibility for their environment, to enhance their educational experience, and to integrate their living and learning.
