Georgetown University strives to be inclusive to all members of our community, including visitors to campus. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Georgetown University is required to provide access to programs and services to all qualified participants regardless of disability. Considering accessibility when planning events can benefit the experience of all participants by creating a more diverse group and providing a welcoming environment to all.
All Georgetown University entities are responsible for ensuring that their programs, services, and activities are accessible. The Accessible Events Guidelines (new window) provides guidance for event planners to understand how to address requested accommodations in a proactive fashion.
