Who We Are

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY believes that all students deserve a holistic experience of academic, residential and co-curricular activities and that the totality of the student experience can contribute to students’ ability to grow and succeed throughout their lives.

Built on a foundation of integrity, creativity and openness to the exploration of new ideas, the university aims to foster a dynamic, student-focused community stimulated by cultural and intellectual diversity.

THE DIVISION FOR STUDENT AFFAIRS empowers the personal and academic development of our diverse community of students. We foster inclusive communities for belonging; provide leadership opportunities and activities; and support student physical, mental, and collective wellbeing.  Our service prepares students for a life of learning, engaged citizenship, and care for self and others.
