Professional Conduct Working Group

About Us

Georgetown University is a diverse, inclusive academic community dedicated to creating and communicating knowledge and educating individuals to be the next generation of global citizens in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition. To maintain this thriving community, the University has a responsibility to create a collegial, healthy and safe environment for its members.

The Professional Conduct Working Group, consisting of representatives from across the University, has been tasked by University leadership with exploring professionalism issues and standards among our faculty and staff.  The Working Group is seeking ideas and input on how to prevent bullying and other forms of unprofessional conduct, enhance a culture of professionalism and respect, and ways to address concerns and challenges regarding professionalism across the Georgetown community.  The information collected will be used to inform the committee’s work.
