Since its founding in 1789, Georgetown has welcomed a diverse community of students, faculty and staff. More than two centuries later – inspired by the Jesuit principles of equality and respect for all – we continue to build bridges of understanding within our multicultural campus community. We provide a network of diversity-related resources to support our students, faculty and staff. Faculty teach a range of courses analyzing dimensions of diversity in the United States and around the world. Georgetown also has a variety of groups celebrating cultural traditions and advocating for respect and inclusion. Georgetown is an equal opportunity employer and makes a concerted effort to hire and retain a diverse community of faculty and staff.
