Any member of the university community can make a report about a possible bias related incident.

Georgetown University has a rich tradition of embracing people from a wide spectrum of faiths, ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds.

The University considers acts of hate and bias unacceptable and antithetical to its commitment to an inclusive and respectful community.

Through the Bias Reporting System, Georgetown is able to track and review bias-related incidents, and provide information and support to individuals who make reports or participate in the bias reporting process. Individuals who file bias-related incidents may also choose to file formal complaints through appropriate University processes, which may lead to an investigation, following which the University can hold accountable those found responsible for violating University policies.

Any member of the university community can make a report about a possible bias-related incident or hate crime

  • through the Bias Reporting System, or
  • by reporting a hate crime to the Georgetown University Police Department at (202) 687-4343 or the Georgetown Law Campus Police Department at (202) 662-9325
