Columbian College boasts over 70,000 alumni living in all 50 states and in more than 100 countries around the world. Their successes in the sciences, in public policy, in the arts, humanities and social sciences are a true measure of our success as a learning institution engaged in providing the breadth and depth of a strong liberal arts education. 

Our alumni make a difference in their communities and in the world beyond, and give back to their alma mater through their time, treasure and talent. They remain engaged in the Columbian College and throughout the university as members of the GW Alumni Association, regional and international Alumni Networks, affinity groups, career services, student alumni programs and in their academic departments and programs.

Columbian College alumni provide philanthropic leadership in ways large and small to enable the college to achieve the next level of excellence.

There are many ways that Columbian College alumni can get involved. Read our newsletters, attend an event, join an alumni network, connect with our students and make a gift.



The Campaign for GW

Making History is a comprehensive, university-wide philanthropic effort to raise funds in support of GW’s vision and priorities.
