Core Faculty

The LGBT Health, Policy & Practice Graduate Certificate Program was developed by a multidisciplinary group of Core Faculty from multiple schools and departments at GWU. These six faculty members write and teach the program course curricula.

Biographical sketches of Distinguished Guest Faculty and invited Guest Presenters for the current program year can be found in the menu tabs on the left.

The Program development was guided by an Advisory Group comprised of faculty from GWU and from other academic institutions, and by leaders in the government and the private sector.
