Who We Are

The GWIC is the first physical space on campus dedicated to cross-disciplinary, social innovation, providing a supportive environment for ideation, creativity and entrepreneurial thinking. Student-lead social impact projects engage faculty, staff, alumni, community stakeholders and industry leaders to address critical challenges.

What We Do

The focal point of the GWIC is to facilitate knowledge transfer and acquisition of hands-on skills, new domain exploration, interaction with peers from other disciplines, alumni, and like-minded people. The GWIC aids discussions around disruptive ideas, exposure to art and affords real-world opportunities for GW students aspiring to create value for others.
