Welcome to the Office of the President
As the 16th president of the George Washington University, I am pleased to welcome you to an institution that is building every day on the visionary promise of its namesake. In his last will and testament, George Washington anticipated an institution that would create citizen-leaders for a young and newly united country. Today, the legacy of the first president of the United States has evolved into a university that graduates citizen-leaders not only for this nation but for the world. With daily contributions from students, faculty and staff, the George Washington University is fully engaged in new initiatives to yield greater knowledge, resources and an even more extensive contribution to our local – and global – community.
