GW Tourism Alumni Network
Founded in 2006 by alumni of the GW Tourism Administration program, the GW Tourism Alumni Network (GWTAN) is open to all GW alumni with a tourism-related degree or coursework, as well as alumni interested in connecting with others working in the field. The purpose of GWTAN is to create a worldwide alumni network to enhance professional development and career advancement in the tourism field, to strengthen relations among alumni, students and GW, and to relay needs and achievements of alumni to the university.
GWTAN fulfills its purpose through organizing alumni programs, such as speaker series, networking events, an annual Colloquium on latest industry developments, and an alumni-student mentoring program.
