Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support the George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center and our efforts to improve regulatory policy through research, education, and outreach. 

Founded ten years ago, the Center is a respected non-partisan source for information and analysis on a range of regulatory issues.Our growing network of global scholars provides high quality, accessible academic research on regulatory policy, analysis, and process. Our events bring together a diversity of views on the most pressing regulatory issues, and our weekly Regulation Digest keeps thousands of subscribers informed on the latest regulatory developments in government, academia, think tanks, and the media.

As a chartered academic center of the George Washington University, 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.  You can help us continue the Center’s important work by donating online, or by mailing your contribution to:
