Did you know that 50% of GW’s electricity comes from solar power? Students and others have filled more than 1,380,000 reusable water bottles. And, GW diverts more than 40% of its waste from landfills. Faculty members and departments across the University conduct important research on issues ranging from melting ice in the Arctic, to environmental law, to sustainable business practices.
Partnerships across the university and in the community make it possible to combine numerous kinds of deep expertise in a manner that builds on individual contributions to create sophisticated solutions that leverage all of the university’s intellectual assets. Contact Us to Partner.
