Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The work to become an anti-racist, equitable, and just community cannot be accomplished in isolation, and does not reside on the shoulders of one person or group. Our efforts must be collaborative, proactive, and center the experiences of those individuals with historically and intentionally marginalized identities. Student Outreach and Support believes in this mission, and we are responsible for educating ourselves about the lived experiences of those with whom we don’t share identities, while avoiding placing the burden on others to educate us.

  • We are committed to the pursuit of justice, equity, and access for all humans, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, country of origin, and religion.
  • We will support ALL Georgetown students regardless of how their belief systems, traditions, values, and politics align with ours.
  • We know that our community members with historically and intentionally marginalized identities add value to Georgetown and should be represented in all spaces where decisions are made, and that their voice and experience are valid, important, and worthy of being heard.
  • We acknowledge that Georgetown as we know it today, exists on the unceded homeland of Indigenous peoples, including the Nacotchtank and Piscataway Conoy peoples, and was built through the forced labor of enslaved individuals and funded by the sale of 272 men, women, and children. 
  • We will make mistakes, and when we do, we will accept responsibility, apologize for any harm we have caused, and work to prevent making the same mistakes in the future.
