Leadership & Learning

Residential communities provide a sense of belonging and give students a vital opportunity to process their experiences in and out of the classroom. We strive to create and sustain an inclusive residential environment in which students can make sense of the world around them through intentional interactions with peers, staff and faculty across the Georgetown campus. In addition to meaning making, students have the opportunity to initiate robust conversations with faculty and staff, advocate for issues of importance, participate in events that build community, and engage in conversations across difference.

Community Directors, Resident Assistants, Resident Ministers, and Faculty-in-Residence work collaboratively to support students living in residential spaces. Educational plans provide a framework for programming around five specific values. InterHall is a student governance structure focusing on advocacy, community building and event planning. Living Learning Communities provide students with the opportunity to purposefully engage around a particular topic or area of interest while residing with other like minded students. Moveable Feast and platED serves as a platform to promote dialogue and encourage students to initiate small group conversations with faculty and staff within the residential environment.
