Their successes in the sciences, public policy, the arts, humanities and social sciences are a reflection of our success as a learning institution and value of a liberal arts degree.

As members of the GW Alumni Association, regional and international alumni networks, affinity groups, industry networks, career services and student alumni programs, Columbian College graduates remain active and engaged members of the university community.

Plato and Policing: Alumnus’ Unique Class for Cops

Whether policing Baltimore’s streets or teaching cops in the classroom, Detective Edward Gillespie, BA ’92, emphasizes the lessons he’s learned from literature, history and philosophy. As a police instructor, his training seminar offers as much Dostoevsky as detective work.

Support Columbian College

 

As we look toward Columbian College’s Bicentennial in 2021, we celebrate the pride, passion and achievements of all who have shared the vision of George Washington in creating and sustaining an extraordinary institution of higher learning. Columbian College could not be where it is today—and could not envision where it will be in its third century—without the support of donors committed to pursuing the frontiers of knowledge and opportunity as exemplified by the engaged liberal arts. From annual donations to endowed gifts, we look to philanthropic investment in scholarship, innovation and creativity to sustain our upward trajectory of excellence
