GW’s Strategic Plan: Path to Preeminence


The university's strategic plan process focused on quality within four pillars that drive excellence in higher education:

• World-Class Faculty
• High-Quality Undergraduate Education
• Distinguished and Distinctive Graduate Education
• High-Impact Research 

President LeBlanc announced in April that GW would pause the strategic planning process for the foreseeable future to focus on immediate needs due to COVID-19.
