Join Us in Shaping Government Communication: Take the GPA Survey

November 21, 2023

The GW GPA Study

The Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) and the Strategic Public Relations master's program are delighted to announce the 2nd Annual National Survey of Government Communication and Public Affairs (GPA).

In 2023, we successfully conducted our inaugural study, which allowed us to gather input from professionals in government settings (Federal, State, and local) and those representing corporations, non-profit organizations, and associations in their interactions with the government.

This year's survey will focus on assessing the trust and effectiveness of government communications from the perspectives of government communication and public affairs professionals, as well as the general public.

Once again, we are proud to partner with Axios, Ragan Publishing, and the National Association of Government Communicators (NAGC) to ensure the success of this initiative administered by Schoen Cooperman Research, a top political and national polling firm.

The insights gained from this survey will shape industry best practices and provide recommendations for improvement. They will also help GSPM strengthen our curriculum and executive education programs, ensuring that our students and professionals can access the most up-to-date and pertinent information.

Please take a few moments to participate in the second year of the study. The anonymous survey is in progress and will be closing soon. Results will be rolled out early in 2024.
