The University has a number of policies and programs that are inclusive of the LGBTQ community. The University offers benefits, such has health insurance coverage to same sex spouses of GW faculty and staff. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA) community at the George Washington University (GW) is a diverse group of students, faculty and staff, who represent a variety of gender and sexual identities unified under the goal of awareness and education.

With four student organizations celebrating and supporting students of diverse sexual and gender identities, students have access to unique and diverse programming designed to build community and raise awareness.

Throughout the year, LGBTQIA programming is integrated into cultural heritage celebrations, highlighting the intersections of sexual and gender identities with racial and cultural backgrounds. In addition, the GW Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual Resource Center is based in the Multicultural Student Services Center and provides a central location for comprehensive educational, support and advocacy services with and for the LGBTQIA community at GW. The university underscores the importance of inclusion by holding all university members accountable for respectful interactions, civility, and a shared responsibility for the well-being of others.

Additional policies on religious accommodation, disability accommodation, equal opportunity hiring, and sexual harassment and sexual violence reinforce these values in policy and procedure. A climate of inclusion and respect accords with the university's strategic plan.
