Kevin Michael Days has joined the George Washington University as director of community relations. Mr. Days will serve as a liaison between the university and local residents and will be responsible for developing, leading and implementing GW’s neighborhood outreach and community efforts.

“GW is deeply committed to the success and vitality of the neighborhoods surrounding our university,” said Renee McPhatter, GW’s assistant vice president for government and community relations. “Kevin understands how strong relationships between neighbors and universities will be beneficial.”

Mr. Days will work with departments across the university to develop relationships with the local community and help them to address any concerns. He will manage stakeholder engagement on GW’s Foggy Bottom Campus, Mount Vernon Campus and the Virginia Science and Technology Campus.

Mr. Days will be part of the Office of Government and Community Relations, which manages meetings of the Foggy Bottom residents’ group FRIENDS and serves as neighbors’ main point of contact on any issue.

“I am looking forward to getting to know all of our fellow community members and continue the progress that GW’s Office of Community Relations has built,” Mr. Days said.

A 20-year nonprofit professional, Mr. Days most recently was a consultant for Serve DC and director of finance and operations for Sustainable Futures Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. Before that, he worked with Achieve, Inc., and the Corporation for National and Community Service. He currently is a member of the board of directors for the National Youth Leadership Council.
