The Georgetown Community Partnership (GCP) is the forum created as part of Georgetown University’s 2010 Campus Plan to facilitate discussion, information sharing, and consensus-based decision making to support a high quality of life in our community and the university's long term planning. In 2012, Georgetown University committed to a 5-year campus plan through 2017 and to engage in a comprehensive master planning process to develop a consensus 20-year plan. Through the GCP, the university is engaging community and city leaders in master planning and neighborhood quality of life initiatives.
The GCP is led by a Steering Committee composed of representatives from ANC2E, ANC3D, the Citizens Association of Georgetown, the Burleith Citizens Association, the Foxhall Village Citizens Association, Georgetown University, and the Georgetown University Student Association. A representative from Medstar Georgetown University Hospital is an ex-officio member of the Steering Committee.
The Steering Committee meets quarterly and provides guidance to 6 working groups. The Steering Committee works on issues related to the University's master planning, including issues related to undegraduate housing and future growth.
The Steering Committee created 6 working groups that meet monthly and address shared goals for neighborhood quality of life and university master planning. Each working group has a University and a community co-chair, and other working group members include university administrators, staff, faculty, students, neighbors, consultants, and government officials. On occasion, a working group will create an ad-hoc subgroup to address a specific issue, including off-campus orientation, transient noise, and communications regarding transportation and parking information. The 6 working groups are:
