The Georgetown University Human Resources Policy Manual is designed to provide a clear statement of the University's Human Resources policy. The policies contained in this manual are in keeping with the values and goals of the University. These policies should be used to inform and guide day-to-day human resources decisions.
These policies have been developed to guide the University into the future while at the same time respecting the past. Reflected here are the guiding principles of Georgetown's Catholic and Jesuit heritage, a commitment to community and service, and respect for fairness, along with recognition of legal mandates. But you will also notice reflected in these policies a philosophy that focuses on balancing the successful management of people and the business of the University.
