About Us

The mission of Orientation, Transition & Family Engagement (OTF) is to centrally facilitate the seamless orientation, transition, and retention of new first-year and transfer students and their families to college, Georgetown, and the broader community.  

To achieve this, the Orientation, Transition & Family Engagement team:

  • Designs and implements ongoing outcomes-based orientation and transition services and programs, from the time of enrollment to the end of the first year
  • Develops students as leaders in providing transitional support to new students
  • Engages parents and families as partners in supporting students
  • Collaborates with campus partners and stakeholders with varying expertise in shaping programs and interventions that create a comprehensive transitional experience

Orientation, Transition & Family Engagement is a unit within the Center for Student Engagement in the Division of Student Affairs.  Our team actively supports and contributes to the mission of Student Engagement, Student Affairs, and Georgetown University.
