Serving Communities in Need
The George Washington University creates and participates in public service and civic engagement efforts that take full advantage of our knowledge and ability to respond to educational, health and social needs. Whether joining established service programs or launching our own signature efforts, GW cultivates a strong spirit of community engagement.
GW students contribute over 150,000 volunteer hours per year through dozens of community partnerships, such as The Neighbor’s Project, SJT Scholars and DC Reads. The Princeton Review counts GW among the nation’s top socially aware schools in “Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.”
