Presentation at Institute for Citizen Leaders

ICL 2023: Sunday, August 13th - Tuesday, August 15th

**Please note this year ICL will be held in-person. **

The Institute for Citizen Leaders (ICL) is a 2.5-day institute hosted by units across GW’s Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement (ODECE) that explores the intersections of community engagement and diversity, preparing students for their roles as leaders in community and civic engagement both on campus and in the D.C. community.

Students have the opportunity to interact and work with GW administrators, faculty, staff and expert facilitators to understand the core values and vision of cultural intelligence, inclusive excellence, social responsibility, and innovative thinking that is a hallmark of the GW educational experience.
