Faculty Information Regarding Remote Learning for Spring and Summer 2020:

There has been a university-level decision to suspend face-to-face classes on campus and the entire institution has moved to complete instructional continuity. 

We take these steps at an extraordinary time, faced with challenges to the health of our community from COVID-19. Nothing is more important to Georgetown than supporting the health and welfare of the faculty, staff and students.

Please continue to communicate with your deans’ offices as issues arise; their leadership has been invaluable as each school, department and research center has addressed the circumstances of this public health emergency. In addition, please visit the Georgetown University Coronavirus Resource Center for campus-wide news, updates, FAQs and other resources. Additional resources from the Office of the Provost can be found below:

Georgetown’s main campus houses six schools that offer an array of intellectually rigorous programs designed to guide our undergraduate and graduate students toward their academic and professional goals. Our degrees include the arts and sciences, international relations, business administration, public policy, specialized certificates and continuing education programs, and executive education.
