GW Law is committed to supporting diversity and inclusion among all students, faculty, and staff. We are proud of the diverse perspectives brought to the community by individuals from around the country and the world. We strive to be a community that acknowledges and celebrates our differences, welcomes challenging dialogues, and provides a space where unique individual and group values are shared and honored. Through our many student groups and committees, GW Law works together to create an atmosphere that accepts all perspectives and champions for increased knowledge and care for one another. As this page develops, it will be a place to find resources on various areas of diversity, and also to communicate the initiatives and accomplishments of GW Law’s diverse community.

If you have more questions about GW Law’s diversity and inclusion initiatives, please contact Dr. Jessica Floyd Alexander, Program Administrator for Wellness, Diversity & Inclusion at 202.994.8320 or [email protected].

Generally, bias-related acts are characterized by some expression of hate or bias against a particular group, or towards an individual because of their membership (or perceived membership) in that group.  Bias incidents may range from acts considered to be offensive to actions that cause harm.

Bias acts may be verbal, written, or contained in an image, or physical in nature. These behaviors often contribute to creating an unsafe or unwelcoming environment for individuals and social identity groups. Acts can qualify as bias acts even when delivered with humorous intent or presented as a joke or a prank.
