"It has given me tremendous pleasure to serve the University and watch it grow and develop over the years. My time as a GW undergraduate was a unique experience that laid the foundation for future success and helped shape my commitment to business and public service."
Philip Amsterdam, 2007

For nearly half of a century, Philip S. Amsterdam demonstrated an enduring dedication to The George Washington University through service and philanthropy. He was a charter member of the National Council for Arts and Sciences beginning in 1993 and served as a GW trustee from 1999 to 2007. In 2007, he received GW's Distinguished Alumni Service Award and as an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree for his volunteer efforts and service to the Department of Anthropology and the Stephen Joel Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration.

Amsterdam was a successful businessman. During his lifetime, he was president and CEO of several commercial building and highway contracting companies.
