Students Making a Difference

Tyler McManus, CCAS ’18, president of the GW Veterans student organization.

Improving the Military Community Center

“I want this to be a place of higher learning, intellectual conversation, and a home away from home with our members knowing they are always welcome. Our members come from all walks of life. This center is designed to make them successful in the classroom and in life.”

GW and Girl Rising

“The Girl Rising internship allowed me to gain the hands-on experience I need to pursue my interests in working in India on gender-based violence, inequalities, and diseases. This experience has not only changed my life, but it has also clarified how to translate my passion for girls and women into pragmatic action.” 

-Gayatri Malhotra, Milken SPH ’18
