The GW community remembers the life of Colin Powell, a trailblazing public servant who in 2001 became the first African American to serve as the United States secretary of state. General Powell, who served in the U.S. Army for 35 years, earned an M.B.A. from GW in 1971 in addition to receiving an Honorary Doctor of Public Service from the university in 1990. He was honored during GW’s Centuries Celebration as one of the university’s distinguished Monumental Alumni and stayed connected to GW throughout the years.

STORIES FROM OUR COMMUNITY
"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
