90 Days with Georgetown

We face an extraordinary moment—an unprecedented public health crisis that, for Georgetown, has instantly transformed how we live and learn.

Fortunately, we are an extraordinary community. Our people have shown great resilience in meeting unimaginable challenges, drawing on our deep expertise in pedagogical innovation, public health, and educational access.

Now, we will deliver an extraordinary response. Fulfilling Georgetown’s teaching and research mission while protecting our community’s health and safety will take tenacity, flexibility, and significant resources.

In these 90 days, we will lay the foundation for our success in the coming academic year. The generosity of our donors could not be more vital. We ask every member of our community to help by supporting two crucial priorities that will directly and immediately strengthen Georgetown: the university’s COVID-19 response and student financial aid.

Our Priorities in This Moment

Secure Georgetown’s health, safety, and educational mission

Georgetown has met the pandemic’s rapidly evolving operational challenges swiftly and diligently—and the fall will bring even more previously unforeseen needs as we work to ensure our community’s well-being. The response will require significant, unrestricted cash resources.

Support Georgetown’s students

Georgetown’s strength is inextricably tied to our students’ talent and success. As families face ever-greater financial strain, we know we will have to provide additional scholarships and support to clear students’ path to a Georgetown education and keep our community whole.

We are immersed in an unprecedented moment that requires the very best of each of us and all of us. With the engagement of every member of our community, we will be equal to the demands that now confront us.
