Annual Reports

Each year, Presidential Administrative Fellows write an annual report about important events and activities that took place during the year.  

This past year, PAFs travelled internationally on service, academic, and professional trips, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and assisted in many GW events, including Flag Day and Freshmen First Night.

PAF 2020 Task Force Report

In the 2010-2011 academic year, the two cohorts of PAFs (the 2011 and 2012 Classes) began discussions related to the administrative support and governance of the PAF program.  Under the guidance of program coordinators Toby Davidow and Peter Konwerski, the current Fellows initiated conversations about enhancements to the program with key stakeholders, including faculty and staff who served as the 2010-2011 PAF second-round interview committee.  In light of these discussions, program coordinators alerted GW senior leadership to these discussions with the desire to support the program participants and stakeholders by taking a methodical look at the Fellowship and making proposed recommendations for the future of its mission, function, and operation.

On March 24, 2011, the PAF second-round interview committee met with current Fellows to discuss the interview process and goals of the PAF program.  On March 29, 2011, the second-round interview committee began the review of the PAF program by formally renaming the committee the PAF 2020 Task Force, which included 14 faculty and staff members and two current PAF representatives. In light of the desire to take a look at how to best support the program for the next decade, through the year 2020, it was decided to use the metaphor of ‘20/20’ vision as the lens through which the team should conduct this analysis.    The goal of the PAF 2020 Task Force was to draft recommendations for the future of the PAF program.

This results of this evaluation reflect the perspectives of Fellows, survey results, and discussions with the Task Force to inform recommendations.
