Wherever around the globe you may be, you will have many opportunities to come together with the GW community through a slate of virtual events being held throughout our bicentennial celebration. While we may not all be together in person, we are a strong community—perhaps never more so than during these challenging times. 

Join us for a variety of virtual events as we showcase how GW students, faculty, staff and alumni are making a difference in the world and discuss how we can help create our future together.
