Founded as Catholic institution, Georgetown University to offer LGBT housing option for students

[Ed. – Progress according to progressives]

Georgetown University, founded in 1789 and ostensibly a “Catholic” school, will offer a “gender & sexuality” housing complex for students starting in the 2018-19 academic year, which will operate as a residential center for homosexual, transgender, and “questioning”  students, according to Campus ReformThe center was the brainchild of Georgetown senior Grace Smith, who leads the student government’s LGBTQ+ Inclusivity Policy Team.

“Our Catholic and Jesuit values call on us to engage with ‘respect, compassion, and sensitivity’ with our LGBTQ community,” said Vice President of Student Affairs Todd Olson in the school newspaper, The Hoya.  “It is in keeping with our Catholic and Jesuit values to provide a language, perspective, and sense of inclusion for deepening our sense of cura personalis.”

Although the Living Learning Community Crossroads: Gender & Sexuality was rejected by Georgetown’s Office of Residential Life back in April 2017, it was approved in December.
