Transfers and Departures

Your employment experience at GW is important to us, even when you are leaving the university or transferring within the university. Please take a few minutes to fill out the exit or transfer survey honestly and thoroughly, as your feedback is valuable in helping us continuously improve and ensure that GW is a great place to work.

Thank you for your service at GW.


Please note information gathered from this voluntary survey or interview will be kept in the strictest professional confidence. Managers will not be allowed access to review the information.

Exit/Transfer Survey and Interview
