Fresh Ideas on Community Engagement & Master Planning

Due to our location in the heart of the Georgetown neighborhood, we as a university strive to be mindful of the concerns and opinions of Georgetown residents while advocating for students’ interests as well. While we have strengthened ties with the Georgetown community through forming the Georgetown Community Partnership and having student representation on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission, there is still room for improvement when it comes to community engagement.

Initiatives:

  • Strengthen the Georgetown Community Partnership: We will continue to appoint knowledgeable and committed students to GCP groups to develop relationships with neighbors and ensure students’ perspectives are heard in neighborhood decisionmaking processes.
  • Increase Student-Neighborhood Programming: We will organize more joint student-neighbor events, such as the Student-Alumni Neighborhood Cleanup, in order to facilitate better relationships between the students and the community.
