Georgetown President DeGioia Affirms Solidarity with the AAPI Community

With the increased number of hate crimes committed against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) over the past year, and in light of the recent mass shooting in Atlanta, Georgia that took the lives of eight people, six of whom were women of Asian descent, Georgetown strongly condemns these acts of violence and hatred, and is united against racism in all its forms.

As Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia shared, “we are called to be in solidarity with our Asian American students, faculty, and staff—to affirm our care and support for one another and to continue our work, here at Georgetown, to sustain a community that is inclusive, welcoming, and respectful of people of all backgrounds.”

Georgetown University stands with the AAPI community during these troubling times. The university reaffirms its commitment to social justice, equity, and fostering a community of diversity and inclusion.
