Response Action Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

GW is committed to developing policies and programs to create an inclusive campus climate that supports an optimal learning and working environment for students, faculty, and staff.   This include embracing the values of respect, inclusion and equality. This work requires our collective awareness, engagement and action.

Please provide comments and recommendations, following the event "A Town Hall Conversation About Race at GW", hosted by President Thomas LeBlanc on February 27, 2018. Your insight will be considered for our campus-wide action plan.

You also are invited to apply to be a member of the Action Plan Project Team.
