Gifts to the GW Regulatory Studies Center will make a difference in our mission to improve regulatory policy through research, education and outreach. The Center is a respected, non-partisan source of information and analysis on regulatory policy. Our scholars regularly publish research in academic journals, have helped educate a generation of leaders in the rulemaking process and are called upon by members of Congress, executive agencies, national media and industry leaders to provide insights into key regulatory policies.

As a chartered academic center of the George Washington University's Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, we continue to teach the next generation of policy officials how to think critically and constructively about regulatory policy and practice. We offer master’s degree courses in the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, host student seminars and sponsor internships in government agencies.

Your support is key to our ability to continue to provide the objective, high quality information that is essential to constructive discourse on regulatory matters and we respectfully request that you make a tax-deductible contribution to the Center this year.

Every gift, large or small, furthers our educational mission and cements the Columbian College’s standing as one of the nation’s preeminent liberal arts colleges.
