Our Story

The GW Regulatory Studies Center's mission is to improve regulatory policy through research, education, and outreach.

The Center is a leading source for applied scholarship in regulatory issues, and a training ground for anyone who wants to understand the effects of regulation and ensure that regulatory policies are designed in the public interest.

Established in 2009, the GW Regulatory Studies Center is an academic center of the George Washington University, a private, top-tier university located in the Nation’s capital. It is housed within the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration. Though relatively young (TSPPPA was formed by combining existing programs in 2003) the Trachtenberg School is consistently ranked among the nation’s top policy schools, and attracts high achieving students interested in careers in public policy. In addition, with our location just a few blocks from the White House and Capitol Hill, the GW RSC is the hub for academic institutions around the country, and brings fresh ideas and analysis to policy makers in Washington.
