Faculty in Residence Program

Faculty in Residence

The central mission of university life is fostering the practice of creative and critical inquiry, using methods that are artistic, humanistic, scientific, social-scientific, quantitative and culturally aware.  Faculty in Residence serve to model these valuable practices in the GW residence halls, and work to facilitate student interaction with others who do the same. 

Our Faculty in Residence connect with residents in a variety of ways, including through programs in the residence halls, trips around the DMV area, workshops, and informal interactions. 

A few programs have included trips to the Spy Museum, spelunking, resume workshops, kayaking on the Potomac, Thanksgiving dinner and desserts, apple picking, cookies and conversation, study breaks, National Geographic Exhibit visits, Nats games, securing an Internship presentation, IMAX Film screenings, Kennedy Center Shows, and many more!

Meet and connect with our Faculty in Residence!
