Service & Engagement
GW has a strong history of commitment to public service, volunteering and making a positive impact on the lives of others at a local, national and international level.
The Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service provides students with a central place to become involved in community service, find resources for funding their projects and becoming a life-long volunteer. From getting involved in D.C. schools to Alternative Breaks in to volunteer abroad, the center is your source for service.
Annual volunteering events include:
- Freshman Day of Service
- Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
- Earth Day
- Celebration of Service
Additionally, GW students are some of the most engaged in career service as well. Since 2008, the university has ranked first among medium-sized universities graduating Peace Corps Volunteers.
