The George Washington University has many offices related to supporting women and engineering students in managing their time at the university and their careers.
At GW, we know that studying and working on a campus that reflects and embraces a rich and broad range of human experiences and perspectives is incredibly important. Not only does it enrich the quality and vibrancy of campus life, it increases our capacity to learn and disseminate knowledge and prepares us for engaged citizenship and leadership in an increasingly diverse and global society.
The Office for Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement provides leadership, resources, and support to advance and sustain inclusive environments for our faculty, staff, and students across the university.
The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service aims to integrate civic engagement into George Washington University’s educational work. We focus GW’s resources to meet community needs beyond the campus, promote active citizenship in a diverse democracy, and enhance teaching, learning, and scholarship at GW.
GW’s Multicultural Student Services Center (MSSC) is an integral part of the Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement in the Office of the Provost. The MSSC’s vision and mission reflect its dedication to building a welcoming, enriching, and inclusive environment at GW. Its rich history demonstrates its role and impact across campus as educators, trainers, advocates, mentors, and community builders.
GWomen, and its inaugural Entrepreneurship Pathway, empowers and accelerates GW women in innovation & entrepreneurship. We’re building a community of GW women who are equipped with the resources, knowledge, network, and skills to transform an idea into a successful business. Join us and the most innovative women on campus!
The mission of GW-BRIDGE (Building Research Interdisciplinarily to Advance Gender Equity) is to advance research conducted at the George Washington University related to gender equity in organizations by connecting scholars who do research in this area using different disciplinary lenses. GW-BRIDGE fosters these connections by organizing meetings and events, sharing resources and information related to organizational gender equity research, and promoting cross-disciplinary research collaborations. It also facilitates connections to researchers and groups external to GW who do research on this topic.
