Resources For Confronting Racism
Georgetown University’s School of Medicine is committed to promoting inclusiveness and has continued to make efforts to present resources for students, faculty, and staff especially in wake of the murder of George Floyd. Below is a list of resources that can be utilized to provide support and allow members of the Georgetown community to learn and foster deeper connections.

Faculty can also utilize a list of books and articles from the University of Minnesota that focus on how to combat racism. Along with this, faculty can become better equipped towards fighting racism through a list of videos and podcasts from the University of Minnesota as well.
Students can access mental health resources on campus or virtually through Georgetown University’s Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS), which allows students 24/7 access to mental health resources through Hoyawell. In fact, students can use their smartphones or any web device to chat with mental health professionals through video or voice message with Hoyawell.
Not only can students readily access CAPS resources, but students can also look to campus ministry to provide spiritual guidance. For example, students can get involved with campus ministry by joining the Black Faith Fellowship Program or by joining Catholic Faith Communities (CFC).
