Vision

George Washington envisioned a university in the heart of the nation’s capital to serve as America’s great intellectual hub, educating future generations of citizen-leaders.

The George Washington University is now at a critical juncture. As we approach our 200th anniversary in 2021,  we are undertaking an ambitious and comprehensive $1 billion philanthropic campaign to carry us to the future outlined in Vision2021, our dynamic strategic plan.

By combining GW's unmatched location, faculty and student talent pools, and relationships with influential organizations, GW students are poised to produce historic achievements on a truly global scale.
