Message from the Chair

Nelson A. Carbonell, Jr.

On behalf of the George Washington University Board of Trustees, welcome to the George Washington University community.

I am honored to represent the university as Chair of the Board of Trustees and equally proud to be an alumnus who holds in the highest regard all that GW has to offer - not only to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, but to our local, national, and global community.
 
The George Washington University Board of Trustees is responsible for our university's governance, and as a result, this assembly is integral to determining how the university meets the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.  Trustees play a key role in overseeing fiscal, academic, and physical operations.  They also provide leadership for George Washington's strategic initiatives - all of which are designed to enhance the academic and student life of our campuses.
