In an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, we’ve decided to alter how we approach our awards luncheon this year. While we cherish the time that we get to convene together as a group and to celebrate our awardees, it is currently appropriate that we seek alternatives to mass gatherings. We’ve worked with catering to arrange for the luncheon to be carryout.
Thanks to all who were able to join us last week at Planning 401: A Briefing on Georgetown’s Campus Plan. We appreciated the opportunity to share Georgetown’s draft consensus Campus Plan, developed through the Georgetown Community Partnership.
In March, the Planning & Facilities Management Team hosted our annual Staff Recognition Luncheon, an important event which celebrates our employees for their dedicated service and gives well-deserved recognition to exemplary performances. This year, team members received special acknowledgement from a Georgetown University organization, Unsung Heroes. The student organization, headed by Febin Bellamy and Harrison Williams, was created to promote awareness and appreciation for employees who often work behind the scenes to ensure that universities run smoothly, safely and efficiently.
During the month of April we held a series of town hall meetings for Planning & Facilities Management team members, focused on Georgetown’s master planning principles and goals, our progress on the campus plan, construction updates, lessons learned from the January 2016 snowstorm, and other topics as questions were asked.
Friday, April 22nd marked the 46th annual Earth Day, a day in which more than 193 countries from around the globe come together to demonstrate their support for worldwide environmental protection. Here at Georgetown, we are celebrating Earth Month. As part of the month’s events, we held a Campus Sustainability Information Session to provide information about the university’s ongoing work to create a more environmentally sustainable campus.
