Enhancing Career Services at GWSB

Mitch Blaser, GWSB '73


Mitch Blaser, BBA ’73, P ‘07, ‘10, has made a $1.2 million gift to support the F. David Fowler Career Center at GW’s School of Business. The charitable lead trust gift provides current-use support of priority initiatives and programs and creates the Blaser Family Endowed Executive Director.
“There are so many ways we can support students in their quest for a career from supporting mock interviews, resume preparation, internship and entry-level job opportunities to the networking and guidance that mentoring can provide,” Blaser said. “The Career Center is the vehicle that students should have at their disposal to access these resources as well as gain the benefit of the counselors’ advice and direction as they navigate through their options.”
Blaser, a GW parent who has chaired both GW’s School of Business Board of Advisors and the Parents Council, chose to direct his gift toward the endowed director position after he interviewed candidates for the position. “I had the privilege of interviewing and recommending the hiring of Gil Yancey, and I believe that his leadership and the leadership of those who follow him is vital to the success of the Career Center,” he said.
