Our Namesake Was a Native Son of Virginia. It's Only Right that We Made His Home Ours, Too
Although the George Washington University is internationally known as the largest university in our nation's capital, GW has also served as one of the Commonwealth’s top private providers of higher education—as well as a leading source of advanced research—for nearly 60 years.
From educational opportunities to employment, economic contributions, human capital and quality of life, thousands of GW alumni, students, faculty, and staff play a vital role in Virginia's culture and economy.
GW seeks to build upon our longstanding ties with the Commonwealth and remain an engaged policy partner with Virginia’s leaders. By sharing our insight and opportunities, we aim to continue to spur innovation and dynamism in economic and community development for years to come.
Our namesake, a native Virginian himself, would expect nothing less.
