The George Washington University Equity Institute Initiative (EII) is a university-wide collaboration to create an institute dedicated to community-engaged research on the worldwide problem of racial and ethnic inequality.

Launched in 2021, the EII provides seed funding to support projects that enhance community-engaged research, train students in social justice leadership, and translate knowledge into action that informs laws, policies, and tangible advances in social justice.

The Equity Institute Initiative initially begun by a core group of visionaries from the GWU Schools of Law, Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Engineering, International Affairs, and the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. EII is a transformational entity that creates an intellectual home and community for collaborations across the University. Our commitment is to grow the impact of GW’s instructional and research resources aimed at the redress of racial, ethnic, and socio-economic inequality in the United States of America and around the world.

In short, the Equity Institute Initiative seeks to serve the cause of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic equality by dedicating our University’s most precious resources – our people and our knowledge – to help solve one of the most pressing challenges of our time.
