Community Engagement

For the GW Virginia Science & Technology Campus, academics and research blend seamlessly with community engagement. Since the Campus opened in Loudoun County, Virginia in 1991, it has been an integral part of the local community leadership and economic development. GW both prepares the region's work force and adds to it. With more than 450 faculty and staff, the Campus is rapidly becoming one of the region’s major employers.

  • Partnerships: Campus partnerships span a wide range of activities, including special educational programs, art exhibits, grants database, and mutually beneficial relationships with a number of other organizations.
  • Community: Community involvement includes members of the Campus community being active leaders in the communities where they live, as well as engaging the university's neighbors and the surrounding community. 
  • Alumni: Campus alumni join a strong community of more than 40,000 alumni in the Commonwealth of Virginia and more than 250,000 alumni living in 150 countries around the world. Alumni are invited to find out more about special events and many resources and services designed for them.
