Excellence within reach: 2018 report

Read the 2018 President’s Report to learn more about how George Mason University provided access to excellence in 2018.

Our impact was greater than ever. We graduated the largest class in our history. We welcomed the largest, most diverse, and most academically prepared freshman class. We offered more pathways to a degree for students of all ages and backgrounds. Research output reached an all-time high. We culminated a record-setting capital campaign that far exceeded our goal. We continued or announced major expansions on all three Northern Virginia campuses. We exerted our role as a talent pipeline by attracting Amazon to move into our backyard.

There is so much to celebrate.
