Fresh Ideas on Cultural and Racial Advocacy

We want to make GUSA representative of the student population. Some of our best student advocates are not involved in GUSA but we want to work collaboratively with them to make the most impact as possible. We want to continue having conversations with students, staff, faculty, staff, and administrators to address issues facing students of color at Georgetown to ensure they have the best experience during their time in the Hilltop.

Initiatives

  • Hold information sessions in departments such as GSP, CMEA, CSJ to encourage students to get involved in the GUSA Executive and run for GUSA Senate
