At the heart of the most successful cities and metropolitan regions in the world are great universities. This is especially true in Washington where the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area represents the combined resources of the Capital region’s best academic institutions. Comprised of thirteen universities and one college, our member institutions are public, private, federal, historically black, religious, secular, devoted to the deaf and hard of hearing, focused on women’s education, and devoted to the arts. Their student body sizes range from a few hundred to over 35,000. Both the USA Today and the Wall Street Journal agree—Washington is a college town!!

Washington, D.C., area universities are a major source of jobs and income in the region, with an economic impact as critical as that of the hospitality industry, according to a study authored by Stephen S. Fuller, director of the Center for Regional Analysis at George Mason University and summarized in the Consortium's new publication CAPITAL ASSETS Economic Impact and Beyond. Consortium-member universities, the largest private employers in the District, add $11.3 billion to the regional economy each year.
