Crossroads is a shared residential space in which students can think, learn, and reflect intentionally about concepts of gender and sexuality as part of a process dedicated to forming a deeper understanding of themselves and others people. Housed in the Village C East community, Crossroads offers students the unique opportunity to engage one-on-one with their peers and faculty through intentional and collaborative programming. This living learning community is open to all interested students, although preference is given to returning Georgetown students.
Every resident will be strongly encouraged to register for Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies as a means to provide students with foundational and common language to use in their dialogues and discussions.
