About Government Relations

Capitol Building and Virginia Capitol


All great cities have great universities. With deep roots in the District of Columbia, the George Washington University is invested in the success and vitality of the Washington metropolitan area and the well-being of its residents. We actively share our resources and cultivate collaboration with the communities surrounding all three of our campuses, including Foggy Bottom, Mount Vernon and our Virginia Science & Technology campuses, enhancing our collective quality of life and advancing our common goals.

The George Washington University’s students, faculty and alumni lend a wealth of intellectual capital to Washington’s policy deliberations, whether they occur in the White House, the U.S. Congress, the D.C. and Virginia governments, the courts or the hundreds of agencies, associations, foundations and think tanks throughout the region. GW infuses Washington’s government-related institutions with its research, experience, human capital and an army of dedicated interns.
