Parents and Families

At GW, we believe that parents and family members are valuable partners in the work we do to inspire the success of our students. The Office of Student Support and Family Engagement strives to keep you well-informed and connected to your student through a variety of communication methods, parent engagement opportunities and events on campus.

To help your student learn to manage their academic and personal success, we recommend that you coach and support your student and encourage him or her to take steps to find information, utilize helpful resources and solve problems on their own. Working together we can provide a dynamic support system for your GW student.  

We hope that you find this page a helpful resource of people, programs and services to keep you informed and engaged in your son's or daughter's experience at GW.  Our staff is available to answer questions, offer assistance in locating campus offices and resources, and provide guidance/suggestions on how to support your student.  If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Division of Student Affairs at 202-994-6710 or via email at gwfamilies@gwu.edu.
