Mission Statement

CMEA enhances the education of students historically denied access to GU because of race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic status, and other marginalized identities.  To live out this mission, CMEA provides a variety of intentional and culturally-relevant programming, services, and opportunities to foster student success inside and outside of the classroom.

We actively promote unfettered access towards educational attainment and social prosperity for our diverse populations.  At Georgetown, our learning communities thrive as a result of our commitments to equity, inclusion, social justice, and civic engagement. We stand committed to nurturing all aspects of students’ development while engaging in difficult and challenging conversations and in thoughtful and intentional ways. We denounce all instances of racism, discrimination, oppression, and bigotry. In keeping with our Jesuit identity, we challenge the university to fulfill its commitment to care for the whole person and prioritize justice for the common good. We acknowledge in both words and actions the realities of the numerous tensions that our communities face daily and advocate to challenge the systems that work to oppress them and their growth.
