A Message from Dean Williams:
It's been a tough semester.
The shocking death of our young sister Andrea Jaime cast a pall over the community. After that, everything--from personal to academic to political struggles --seemed harder. A long-awaited revision of national immigration policy became a temporary promise of half a loaf. And then, just as this sad season was about to be over, the ominous cloud of Ferguson, hovering overhead since before the semester began, finally burst in a torrent of bitterness.
As we prepare for the end of this longest semester, please remember this: Georgetown remains a place of great privilege. All of us who study and work here enjoy privileges systematically denied to the vast majority of people in this country. The only way any of us can be said to have earned this privilege is to use it to change that equation.
So take a deep breath, take care of yourselves, and remember why you're here.
We all have work to do.
The Center for Multicultural Equity & Access (CMEA) supports students of color in a variety of ways. We can provide you with:
- Someone to talk to about personal issues or concerns
- Advice on courses, majors, careers or navigating the university administration
- A chance to explore diversity issues
- An opportunity to help DC students prepare for college
- A chance to welcome and/or host prospective Georgetown students
- Affordable options for textbooks, printing, or summer housing
- Friendly faces and a place to call home…
