“Whether you want to fol­low in the foot­steps of giants or forge a new path, this is the place to start.”

Found­ed in 1821 and char­tered by the Unit­ed States Con­gress, George Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­si­ty is locat­ed in the cap­i­tal of the Unit­ed States.  The Uni­ver­si­ty is focused on five strate­gic ini­tia­tives that will guide the university’s efforts over the next sev­er­al years; stu­dent expe­ri­ence, research, Phil­an­thropy & Con­stituent Engage­ment, Med­ical Enter­prise and Insti­tu­tion­al Culture.

The Man­ag­er Instruc­tion­al Tech­nol­o­gy role will have a dual-report­ing struc­ture into both the School of Media and Pub­lic Affairs’ (SMPA) admin­is­tra­tion and the Columbian Col­lege Office of Tech­nol­o­gy Ser­vices (OTS).

The School of Media and Pub­lic Affairs (SMPA) is a trail­blaz­er in the study of polit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, jour­nal­ism and media.

As the only school of its kind in the cap­i­tal of pol­i­tics and media, SMPA excels at bring­ing Wash­ing­ton into the class­room. The SMPA com­mu­ni­ty ben­e­fits from access to an exten­sive net­work, events with polit­i­cal and media lead­ers and a prime loca­tion to explore the inter­play of media and politics.

Their grad­u­ates are lead­ers in advo­ca­cy, pol­i­tics, busi­ness and jour­nal­ism and our stu­dents engage the world around them through intern­ships and access to deci­sion-mak­ers, com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers and pow­er brokers.

The Columbian Col­lege of Arts and Sci­ences is GW’s intel­lec­tu­al and cre­ative backbone—a place where research thrives, crit­i­cal think­ing is encour­aged, col­lab­o­ra­tion is con­stant and real-world train­ing goes hand-in-hand with learning.

As pio­neers of the Engaged Lib­er­al Arts, they equip stu­dents with the skills and com­pe­ten­cies need­ed to be effec­tive, respon­si­ble 21st-cen­tu­ry citizens.
