Statement Regarding GW Students in Egypt

GW banner
January 31, 2011

WASHINGTON – There are currently 14 GW students participating in study abroad programs in Egypt; two in Alexandria and 12 in Cairo.

We are in communication with our students and staff who are supporting their programs and have confirmed that they are safe. We are also in regular contact with their parents to be sure all parties have the most up to date information.

We have advised our students to take precautions to ensure their continued safety, including avoiding demonstrations and staying in close contact with their parents and program administrators.

Program administrators are working to identify options to bring our students back to the United States safely as quickly as possible. Our students are being advised to remain in place until safe arrangements can be made.

We have also reached out to Egyptian and Tunisian students studying at GW in the U.S. to offer any support that they may need.
