Discrimination & Bias Reporting

Discrimination Complaint Process

The Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Affirmative Action (IDEAA) reviews, investigates, and resolves alleged violations of the University’s Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination in Employment and Non-Discrimination in Education Policies, Affirmative Action Policy, the Policy Statement on Harassment, the Policy on Sexual Misconduct, and the Policy on Consensual Sexual or Romantic Relationships.

If you believe you have experienced discrimination in violation of one of these policies, or are aware of discrimination occurring in a Georgetown University program or activity, you may choose to file a complaint with IDEAA. To review the University’s Grievance Procedure or file a discrimination complaint with IDEAA, please refer to the Grievance Procedures (new window) (new window) (new window) and the Discrimination Complaint Form (new window) (new window) (new window).
