Event Planning & Reimbursement


This page contains important event-planning resources for student organizations. When an organization associated with the McCourt School of Public Policy plans an event, it must typically go through the following steps.

Important Updates

  • New Calendar: Georgetown recently launched a new events calendar system. If you would like to post an event to the calendar on the McCourt School website, please contact Cristal Clark to have it posted. If you are having a major event, and would like to have it posted to the main University calendar, please use this event submission form.

  • Virtual Event and Recording Release Form: If you are hosting a virtual event with a speaker from outside Georgetown, and you plan to either webcast that event or record it for posting on a Georgetown website at a later date, you must have the speaker fill out the Georgetown University Virtual Event & Recording Release Form

  • Please don’t hesitate to contact Cristal, Su or Lauren if you have any questions.
