Religious and Faith Community
The Religious and Faith community at the George Washington University (GW) is a diverse group of students, faculty and staff, who represent a variety of backgrounds and experiences unified under the goal of religious celebration and interfaith sharing. Currently, Roman Catholic and Jewish student enrollment represent the largest combined percentage of the undergraduate population, with religiously unaffiliated students representing the next largest self-identification.
With 22 student organizations promoting the values, beliefs and traditions of numerous religious and faith traditions, Religious Life programs include worship services, community building, study of sacred texts, as well as signature interfaith events, including the 9/11 Interfaith Vigil, the Interfaith Dinner and the Interfaith Baccalaureate.
Throughout the year, GW celebrates religious holidays and faith traditions (PDF). The Multicultural Student Services Center provides logistical support for religious and faith-based organizations to collaborate and promote dialogue.
