About

It is an exciting time for Research at GW, with more than 85 centers and institutes and research in cutting edge projects in science and technology, health, public policy, global security, and the arts and humanities. Research and innovation are driving forces advancing GW as an academic institution and society as a whole, and the Office of the Vice President for Research works diligently to strengthen existing initiatives and expand into new multidisciplinary fields.

As we move further into the 21st century, research becomes crucial to a top-notch education and central to the university's mission. Led by Vice President Leo Chalupa, our office works in tandem with faculty to facilitate all phases of the external and internal funding processes, and provides support for faculty and student research initiatives.
