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.
No matter where you look across campus, sustainability certainly played a pivotal role in shaping the last academic year at Georgetown University.
As Master Planning continues to drive a more sustainable campus, Georgetown partnered with countless student groups, industry leaders and influencers to realize sustainable practices derived from our Jesuit values to ensure a greener tomorrow on the Hilltop.
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.
