CI Staff

Leadership Team- Under the direction of the Coordinators of SSFE, the Colonial Inauguration Leadership Team is comprised of student coordinators who previously served on the Colonial Cabinet and supervise a group of student staff (Colonial Cabinet).  The CI Headquarters Staff (CIHQ) works together to coordinate and implement all facets of CI, including hiring and training their staff, developing and facilitating CI programming, and overseeing general CI logistics.  They are a great resource to utilize before, during, and after CI, so do not hesitate to stop and speak with them while you are on campus, or contact them at cihq@gwu.edu.
