Graduate School of Education - George Mason University

Our Graduate School of Education is the alma mater for one third of teachers and administrators in Northern Virginia’s world-class school systems. Each year, more than 3,000 graduate students enroll in our innovative academic programs, which include advanced study for teachers and school leaders, instructional design and technology, and a renowned PhD in Education program that is among the largest in the country.


School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism - George Mason University

The School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism (SRHT) offers exciting, career-ready majors in dynamic fields such as athletic training, tourism and events management, health and physical education, kinesiology, sport management, and recreation management. SRHT features renowned faculty, cutting-edge research, six laboratories and centers, and a diverse student body of more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year. Each major requires one or more internship or clinical experiences, ensuring that students graduate not just with a transcript but with a resume that demonstrates their professional aptitude and skills.

“We prepare students to transform the lives of people in Virginia and beyond through the quality of our academic programs and the impact of our research. This is a moment of great opportunity for the college and all whom we serve.”

—Dean Mark R. Ginsberg

The College of Education and Human Development has identified two areas of focus which will significantly impact our students and community:

Dean’s Excellence Fund

Supporting the Dean's Excellence Fund helps to create and expand undergraduate and graduate student learning environments. Annual gifts at any level help to ensure that CEHD has sustainable resources to better fulfill its academic mission.

Scholarship and Fellowship Fund

An education at one of the most inclusive research universities in the country is an opportunity that all students should have, regardless of financial status. Shifts in funding streams means more Mason students are forced to assume increased student loan debt, work multiple jobs, or defer college until later in life.

You can make a gift online to the areas of focus listed above or specific departments.

Faculty and Staff: If you’d like to make your gift using a credit card, please give online. If you’d rather use payroll deduction, use this form.
