Deeds, not words

“Deeds, not words” was George Washington’s credo. In that spirit, we are building on the success of our first $1 billion campaign by increasing alumni engagement and pioneering new strategies for fundraising and donor relations.

Under President Thomas LeBlanc, GW has identified five strategic initiatives that will guide the university’s efforts during the next year.

Our DAR vice president, Donna Arbide, shares the president’s bold vision for GW and for our division. Together we are building a best-in-class advancement operation. Join us.

We're GW, here to show the way *

Guided by our values, which include community, diversity, and teamwork, GW is an engaging and rewarding workplace. If you're looking to join a talented team and change the lives of students, faculty, and the broader community, then consider us.

* Join our team and you’ll hear phrases like “Raise High” and “We’re GW, here to show the way” used by GW community members. These rallying calls are drawn from the GW Fight Song.

I get to interact with alumni a good deal and we have more spontaneous interactions with current students in GW's Science and Engineering Hall. It has been exciting to be part of the transformation of GW, and the engineering school in particular.

What attracted me to GW and what continues to prove itself as one of our best assets, is the DAR group and our culture, opportunities for professional development and growth, and a certain je ne sais quoi that emanates from leadership. I really feel we’re on the brink of something exciting.
