A Community of Learning

The George Washington University inspires and nurtures a community of learning, with ten schools and colleges spanning the breadth of scientific and social understanding. Our faculty and students draw upon the city’s rich array of institutions and resources, from the World Bank to the Smithsonian Institution, while giving back to the community through collaboration and professional practice. For example:

  • GW law students train in the school’s nine clinics, advancing the rights of consumers, immigrants, patients and others by taking on cutting-edge and precedent-setting cases.
  • GW’s Center for Excellence in Public Leadership blends academic research with real-world experience as it trains city agency managers and community leaders who advance social progress for the District of Columbia.
