The Office of Government and Community Relations (GCR) is dedicated to advancing the Medical College of Wisconsin’s (MCW) mission to be a national leader in the education and development of the next generation of physicians and scientists; to discover and translate new knowledge in the biomedical sciences; to provide cutting-edge, interdisciplinary and compassionate clinical care of the highest quality; and to improve the health of the communities we serve.
To that end, the mission of GCR is to serve as the link and voice among MCW, policymakers at the federal, state and local levels, and neighbors, civic organizations and businesses. The Office acts as the primary liaison and advocate to these stakeholders on behalf of MCW by fostering open communication, understanding and collaboration to establish and maintain mutually beneficial relationships.
The functions of government and community relations are complementary charges. MCW’s government relations-led initiatives provide a unique opportunity to inspire and call to action significant levels of community involvement. Conversely, community-based collaborations, partnerships and coalitions serve as key drivers for MCW’s overall success.
