Public Service Careers
“GW is a top school in many areas…public policy, the arts, politics, and scientific research…You rank number one among private universities in the number of students who become Peace Corps Volunteers.
And second, the largest employer of GW graduates last year was Teach for America. If young people in America make the kind of choices students are making here at GW, we’re going to have a great future.”
- Bill Gates speaking in Betts Theatre, GWU (December 4, 2009)
