The Office of Academic Affairs & Compliance reinforces the relationship between the School's liberal and professional studies programs and the fundamental Jesuit values of Georgetown, bridging academic rigor with human values, ethics, and cura personalis, a central belief in each individual's unique needs and gifts. We monitor student progress to ensure that minimum academic standards are met; serve as the final point of appeal for exceptions to policy; assess overall program quality; and provide academic trainings and workshops to students, faculty, and staff in the School's credit and non-credit, high school, undergraduate, and graduate programs.
In keeping with the historic mission of Georgetown University, the School educates students to become more reflective, active, purposeful citizens who strive to improve themselves and our shared world, embodying Georgetown's Catholic and Jesuit values and heritage and respecting the principles and traditions of each individual. Each academic program establishes learning goals that build upon the central mission of the School and of Georgetown University.
All programs offered by Georgetown are accredited through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and all graduate programs, including the Master of Professional Studies, Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, and Doctor of Liberal Studies, have been approved by the Graduate School at Georgetown.
