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 engages and encourages student learning by creating and fostering communities that promote personal development. Students are offered opportunities, services, and activities that promote connectedness, diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

The Student Affairs team is comprehensive, collaborative, and supports the university mission to be academically rigorous and, simultaneously, student-centered.
