The ellioTT School



The mission of The ellioTT school of inTernaTional affairs is:

• To educate the next generation of international leaders

• To conduct research and produce scholarship that advances understanding of important global issues

• To engage the public and the policy community in the United States and around the world,

thereby fostering international dialogue and shaping policy solutions

our mission is to create knowledge, share wisdom and inspire action to make our world a better place.


recent survey of scholars ranked the Elliott School’s undergraduate and graduate

programs in the top 10. Only five schools in the world were ranked this highly in

both categories. It’s an impressive club.

It’s also an important club. The issues we study at the Elliott School—ranging from war and

peace to poverty and development—affect the lives of billions of our fellow human beings.

Powerful international dynamics—population growth, rising levels of resource consumption,

the expansion of the global economy, mounting environmental challenges—will shape the

world in the decades ahead. Wise policy and effective international cooperation will be more

important than ever. At the Elliott School, the study of international affairs is not an abstract

exercise. Our aim is to make our world a better place.

The Elliott School is in a unique position to make a difference. Our location in the heart of

Washington, DC—just steps from some of the most influential U.S., international and nongovernmental

organizations in the world—enriches our teaching and research, and it provides

us with unmatched opportunities to engage the U.S. and international policy communities.

The Elliott School is special, not just because of where we are, but who we are. As you will

see in this Annual Report, our scholars, students and alumni are extraordinarily talented

and dedicated, united by a passion for international affairs and a commitment to others,

and they are accomplishing great things. The Elliott School community is one of the largest

networks of international affairs experts in the world, and this further magnifies our impact

on the world.

I am grateful to the members of the Elliott School community for their exceptional

commitment to our collective endeavors. I am especially grateful to our many donors for

their generous support of this wonderful and important institution. Gifts from donors are

having transformational effects on our students and faculty, on our teaching and research,

and on our ability to make a difference in the world.

In the 21st century, international decision makers will need cross-disciplinary knowledge,

cross-cultural perspectives, keen minds and compassionate hearts. At the Elliott School, we

prepare our students for this future. Undergraduates study an interdisciplinary liberal arts

program that draws on anthropology, culture, economics, geography, history, languages,

political science, science and technology. Graduate students combine rigorous academic

courses with professional training, including skills courses on topics ranging from political

analysis to leadership. Students come to the Elliott School from many different parts of the

globe. They leave the Elliott School prepared to make a difference.

“Though I went on to get an MBA from Wharton, it was GW that fostered my love for international

affairs and international economics, leading me to work all over the globe. Thus, giving to GW was an

easy decision. I wanted to make sure other students could benefit from a GW education the way I had.

My professors were experts in their fields, whether that field was academia, government or industry.

The District of Columbia was my university. I traveled to international law libraries, the Library of

Congress and any relevant institute to do research for courses. Averell Harriman, diplomat, statesman

and former U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, led my small group seminar. His wife, Pamela

Harriman, sat in the back of the room for every class. I was in the center of the political universe!

When my daughter was ready to go to college, we decided we wanted to start a family tradition,

security risks. Director Jennifer Brinkerhoff chaired a session as part of Civil Society Day, a Brussels-based event sponsored by

The Japan-united states friendship commission

has funded the program since 1989. The Korea

funding for the trilateral exchange program

in 2006-07. The participants cultivate strong

professional and social ties, enabling them to

debate controversial political issues. There are no

lectures or written presentations. Members lead

Engaging thE public

and policy community


Engaging the public and the policy community is a key component of the Elliott School’s

mission. By expanding understanding and encouraging dialogue on global issues, we foster

informed policy in the United States and around the world. Each year the Elliott School

hosts hundreds of prominent leaders and foreign affairs experts whose work advances the

public debate on matters of international importance. Our scholars contribute frequently to

discussions in the media, and they collaborate regularly with colleagues in the world’s top

research institutions. Our 16,000 alumni form a global network that further enhances the

Elliott School’s outreach and influence around the world.

volunteered to mentor Elliott School graduate

students on career issues during 2006-2007. Elliott

School alumni are also active in the GW Alumni

that tradition every day when we engage with our

fellow alumni to help them continue benefiting

from our worldwide community throughout their

lives, represent the voice of alumni in the University

community, and continue the philanthropy this

institution depends on to shape the lives of the

next generation of alumni.”

— richard crespin (BA’93)

In 2006-2007, the Elliott School brought alumni

The Elliott School is deeply grateful to the many individuals, corporations and foundations

the internAtionAl council

The International Council is an advisory body composed of distinguished alumni and friends of the

Elliott School. Members provide counsel to the dean and offer valuable external perspectives on issues

facing the school.

The International Council convenes semi-annually. In October 2006, the Council examined academic

programs, alumni relations and fundraising, and received a briefing from Assistant Secretary of State

for Intelligence and Research randall m. fort (BA’78). In April 2007, Council members, students and

guests heard amb. edward W. Gnehm, Jr. (BA’66, MA’68) deliver his first official lecture as the Kuwait

Foundation professor of Gulf and Arabian Peninsula affairs. At the meeting that followed, the Council

focused its attention on the Elliott School’s external relations and met with the Vice Chair of the GW

Board of Trustees nelson carbonell (BS’85).

A number of International Council members are active in Elliott School programs:

maria livanos cattaui and steven l. skancke (BA’72, M.Phil.’78, Ph.D.’81) teach courses

James B. Quigley (BA’82) and elin Thomasian (BA’00, MBA’05) came to campus to recruit

Timothy J. medina (BA’88) is active with the david h. miller foundation, a group working to enhance

African Studies at the Elliott School

We are indebted to this exceptional and engaged corps of leaders.

“I’ve found that contributing to the Elliott School has been very rewarding.

It’s been very fulfilling to be a part of building a first-class institution with

a growing international reputation. But more than that, as compared to

contributions to other institutions with a history of large endowments, I’ve felt

that my contributions have had more impact and therefore meant more at the

Elliott School. In addition, as a contributor, I’ve been made to feel part of the

community and have been welcomed for my insights and energy as much as

my monetary commitments. All in all, giving to the school has been a terrific

experience, and one where I felt that I was making a real difference.”

The daVid h. miller endoWmenT

David H. Miller (BA’87) died at the age of 39 of lymphoma in 2004. After his death, friends and family established the

David H. Miller Endowment for African Studies at the Elliott School. David Miller believed that Africa’s success will be

ensured by access to higher education for African nationals, and by educating people in the developed world about the

economic, cultural and political challenges in Africa today. As the Miller endowment grows, the fund’s annual earnings

will enrich African studies at GW through part-time professorships, by sponsoring public lecture series and extending

financial support to African students to attend the Elliott School.
