Kathryn A. KuhnWelcome to MCW Government and Community Relations!
The Office of Government and Community Relations serves the Medical College of Wisconsin by administering, enhancing, and building MCW’s relationships with federal, state and local elected officials and government agencies, as well as with civic leaders and representatives from community based organizations to encourage investment in and support for the College. The Office coordinates MCW’s response to a wide range of political and policy issues, and advises faculty, staff and students on strategies to facilitate constructive dialogue with government and community leaders.

Key Functions
The Office of Government and Community Relations is charged by the President and Board of Trustees to advance the interests of the Medical College of Wisconsin in a non-partisan, transparent and executive manner. Its operations are strategically designed to create an ethical environment within the College and among its external constituencies to promote its four missions. The Office conducts itself as an ambassador of MCW without regard to one particular area of research or discipline.
