April 1-5
Salt Lake City, Utah

The 2013 Statesmanship Invitational is approaching! For the first time ever, this annual event will include the participation of several elected officials from the Utah State Senate and House of Representatives, as well as political operatives from Utah's most influential free-market think tanks. Given the real-world experience of these facilitators, this opportunity will be unlike any simulation previously held at GWU.  In the tradition of previous years, the simulation scenario will be announced one week prior to the event.

Details to Know

This year's event will begin at 4pm on Monday, April 1, and will conclude on Friday evening. A special orientation on parliamentary procedure will precede the simulation beginning at 12:30pm on Monday.

Simulation activities typically consume the whole of each day and evening. A portion of this event will occur at the state Capitol. The dress code is business dress. See our guidelines here.

This event is designed for students at the college level. Advanced students of high school age and older adults are also welcome to participate.

Cost per participant is $250. Visiting online students pay a reduced fee of $160. For on-campus students the fee is included as part of regular tuition.

Attendees are eligible for one course credit for their participation. Depending on enrollment status, additional costs may be associated with course credit. For details, contact Jeffery Francom at registrar@gw.edu.

Prearranged accommodations are available with host families, individuals and nearby hotels. Contact GWU at info@gw.edu for details.
