Further Resources

We provide a non-exhaustive list of other resources that may be particularly useful to students of our diverse community. 

Research Opportunities. You can find out more about how to get involved in research at the Psychology Department and beyond, including securing funding for research, here

Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity & Affirmative Action. Beyond the Psychology Department, Georgetown University’s IDEAA Office works with all members of our community to monitor and reduce bias and discrimination. IDEAA’s services include investigating allegations of harassment, discrimination, and related retaliation and providing informal resolution services, as a way to resolve such allegations. 

The Office of Global Services (OGS) provides resources specific to graduate and undergraduate international students.

The Connection Project. Hoyas Connected is a new and exciting initiative being brought to Georgetown for the first time in Fall 2023 through the Psychology Department. Hoyas Connected trains select undergraduates to co-lead small groups of 1st-year, 2nd-year, and transfer students in weekly discussions and activities centered around explorations of trust, relationship-building, and identity. The program developed at the University of Virginia has been shown to have particularly strong benefits for students from underrepresented communities. Hoyas Connected is an excellent opportunity for students looking to form new or deeper relationships, understand themselves better, grow their interpersonal skills, help bridge differences with others, or feel a better sense of connection with Georgetown. Any first-year, second-year, or transfer student is invited to enroll in the groups via the 1-credit Psyc 3750 Hoyas Connected class. Students looking to apply to become facilitators, who can make a two-semester commitment, should reach out to Professor Andrea Bonior (alg7@georgetown.edu), the Director of Hoyas Connected.
