George Washington University (GW) is the largest institution of higher education in the District of Columbia. GW has more than 20,000 students—from all 50 states, the District and more than 130 countries—studying a rich range of disciplines: from forensic science and creative writing to international affairs and computer engineering, as well as medicine, public health, the law and public policy.

GW strives to provide an environment where knowledge is created and acquired and where creative endeavors seek to enrich the experiences of the global society. With ten schools and colleges and nearly 100 research centers and institutes, all students receive hands-on experience as they explore nearly any avenue of personal interest. The depth and breadth of GW academic programs, the exceptional qualifications of our full-time faculty, the unmatched experiences of the adjunct faculty and the strengths of its research initiatives allow the students, the faculty and the staff to look at the world beyond the classroom.
