Event Description

This academic year‚ we proudly commemorate the 125th anniversary of international affairs education at GW and the 35th anniversary of the naming of the Elliott School of International Affairs

Since 1898‚ the George Washington University has offered an unbroken succession of international affairs programs of study‚ beginning with the School of Comparative Jurisprudence and Diplomacy. The school’s opening ceremony was an auspicious affair with U.S. President William McKinley and his Cabinet attending. Since then‚ the school has gone through multiple iterations before becoming the Elliott School‚ named in 1988 to honor former GW President Lloyd H. Elliott and his wife Evelyn E. Elliott. 

Dean Alyssa Ayres and the Elliott School Board of Advisors invite you to join us for a celebration of our Elliott School community’s impressive record of achievements over the past 125 years.
