The Georgetown Sexual Misconduct Survey: A Report on Survey Findings, our Task Force, and Our Work Going Forward- 
Laura Cutway, Rosemary Kilkenny, Todd Olson, Michael Tartaglia
This reporting session will provide participants with a more in-depth understanding of the institutional work and conversations about the critical issue of sexual misconduct. A group of administrators, faculty, and students have spent this academic year working intensively in response to the results of Georgetown's first Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey. The survey revealed a set of challenging facts about the impact of this phenomenon on our campus, and provided a call for us to strengthen and broaden our efforts to respond. The areas we have discussed include our campus culture, policy issues, support programs for survivors, reporting mechanisms, a range of educational programs and engagements, the role of alcohol and drugs, and the needs of several vulnerable populations. The intended audience is all faculty and administrators interested in engaging this topic more deeply. The outcome is simply to broaden awareness and help bring about positive change on the several dimensions of this complex problem.

Don't Build a Ladder, Tear Down the Wall: Reporting out from the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access- Andria Wisler
We will provide an overview of the Advisory Board for Access and Affordability and our year's community-building and work process towards the final outcome of a report presented to senior leadership. The report details the 35-member Board's vision and action plans for a Georgetown in which access and affordability are prioritized for all at a moment when parallel structures (work-arounds and special forms) footnote our processes and policies. The presenters, co-Chairs of the Board, will share how we stressed a vision that embodied a whole institution approach in order to displace the burden for coping away from the student. Such a transformational strategy encourages a commitment to further learning diverse educational histories and trajectories. It implicates all members of our community into a shared responsibility for creating a Georgetown experience, environment, and culture that uplifts the human dignity of all faculty, staff, and students. The paramount objective of the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access is to demolish barriers that prevent students from fully embracing all aspects of the Georgetown experience—and avoid building ladders, which workaround existing university policies and structures.

Undocumented Students Working Group Report- Angel Garcia
This session will highlight the experiences of undocumented students at Georgetown University and the ways in which faculty and staff can be allies to both undocumented students and students from mixed status families. We will share an overview of the national landscape in regards to undocumented students at universities nationwide, with a focus on what Georgetown is currently doing to support their respective journies. The Undocumented Student Task Force is comprised of students, faculty, and staff from across campus whose mission is to support undocumented students and the unique challenges they may face while at the university. The audience for this session is for anyone on campus - faculty, staff, administrator - who wants to learn more about supporting undocumented students at Georgetown. We strongly believe it is everyone's responsibility to be aware of the resources that exist on campus so that if a faculty or staff member becomes aware of a student's (or their family's) status, they are equipped with the necessary tools, knowledge and resources to support that student in a way that holds their humanity.
