Academic Support for Georgetown Student-Athletes

Georgetown University is committed to providing academic support for all students and to integrating students with disabilities as fully as possible into all aspects of University life.

The Academic Resource Center fulfills this mission by providing:

  • assistance in many skills areas necessary for academic achievement through individual consultations or workshops;
  • accommodations to students with disabilities under the ADA and Section 504;
  • facilities and support services to help ensure equal opportunity for students with disabilities.

The Jesuit value of cura personalis, "care of the whole person," represents the mission of Georgetown University. The Academic Resource Center upholds this value in carrying out its mission to meet the various needs of the students.
