Land Acknowledgement

As an institution dedicated to our Jesuit values, Georgetown University recognizes that the land we currently occupy was and still is the homeland of the Nacotchtank and their descendants, the Piscataway Conoy people. We acknowledge that these peoples and many others were forcefully removed and that this University’s occupation is fundamentally tied to colonial development. We acknowledge that the consequences of this removal continue to affect these Indigenous communities. We offer our gratitude for the land and her people as we learn, teach, work, and commune.

This University celebrates the resilience, strength, and enduring presence of Indigenous people demonstrated around the world. We are committed to supporting the Indigenous members of our community as we educate ourselves on Indigenous histories, cultures, and issues. This is a reflection of our commitment to the values of People for Others as we form our Community in Diversity.
