Georgetown College is committed to providing a diverse and inclusive community by recognizing, respecting and celebrating individual differences and commonalities in our students.
The Office for Diversity and Inclusion at Georgetown College plays a vital role in creating a holistic learning environment that prepares our students to be empowered, informed and responsible citizens for our local and global communities. Our office routinely works with other areas on campus to provide programming/resources that serve the needs of all students. We believe in protecting the rights of all students regardless of race, socioeconomic status, age, politics, geographical origin, sexual and gender orientation, or religious belief. We recognize the need for all students to learn from those who are different, as well as to discover commonalities, and to grow from these experiences as they form their own beliefs.
Our goal is to provide diverse educational opportunities for all students through a quality higher education experience here at Georgetown College.
Georgetown College Non-Discrimination Statement
As a Christian institution, Georgetown College builds community through admissions, hiring and promotion policies based on merit, qualification and character. As a matter of policy and in compliance with state and federal laws, Georgetown College operates on the principle of non-discrimination. Georgetown College does not discriminate, either in the admission of students, hiring and promotion of employees, or in the administration of any educational policies, programs, or activities on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, disability or veteran status. Because the College is primarily residential in nature, Georgetown College reserves the right to restrict admissions to undergraduate programs on the basis of sex due to limitations in availability of campus housing, if necessary. The College may use religion as a factor in making faculty employment decisions and in Board of Trustees appointments. This policy is in compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Inquiries or concerns should be directed to the Director of Human Resources or the Title IX Coordinator at 502-863-8000.
The office for Diversity and Inclusion serves as a resource to students in order to meet their unique needs, as well as a resource for faculty and staff in working with diverse students.
Our office works with various student groups, faculty, and staff to provide meaningful programming that supports inclusiveness across campus.
Students are engaged in opportunities that extend our message of inclusion to the Georgetown campus and community.
