DSA Advisory Council

The Division of Student Affairs (DSA) Advisory Council is a diverse group of alumni, parents, family members, and community leaders who:

  • Serve as champions of DSA and of the student experience;
  • Volunteer their time to enhance the student experience;
  • Connect and introduce DSA to new funding sources and strategic partnerships;
  • Identify potential employment and internship opportunities for GW students and alumni;
  • Attend Council meetings and participate in Council projects; and
  • Provide an annual leadership-level (Luther Rice Society) financial contribution in support of DSA. Luther Rice Society giving levels are a minimum $1,000 for parents, friends, and alumni 10+ years after graduation, $500 for alumni six to nine years after graduation, and $250 for alumni within five years of graduation.
