Spirit of Service

GW helps. All students discover their own paths toward contributing intellect and energy in service to their communities, their nation and the world.

  • GW is among the top 15 medium-sized schoools in the nation to provide Peace Corps volunteers.
  • This year GW's Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service supported the GW community in completing 163,890 hours of community service.
  • Students participate in a variety of community outreach projects including DC Reads, Jumpstart, Community Building Community and Adopt-A-Family.
  • Teach for America is the top employer for GW seniors. The University acceptance rate for the program is 32 percent, more than double the national average of 14.5 percent.
