Protecting Whistleblowers since 1977

GAP and Academia

Printer-friendly version

GAP works closely with academic institutions, speaking regularly on college campuses and working closely with faculty scholars around the world whose research focuses on various aspects of whistleblowing.


College Speaking Program: “Truth Be Told: Reflections from Whistleblowers”

GAP offers on a limited basis a customized program entitled “Truth Be Told: Reflections from Whistleblowers.” This program evolved from our successful American Whistleblower Tour, where GAP visited more than 30 colleges and universities to educate and inspire the next generation of workers and leaders about the important role whistleblowers play in holding institutions accountable and protecting the public interest.

This program features a GAP expert moderator along with one or more notable whistleblowers who share their experiences of deciding to speak up rather than stay silent in the face of serious misconduct. Learn more about bringing GAP’s Truth Be Told Program to your campus.


University of the District of Columbia School of Law Government Accountability Project Law Clinic

For nearly four decades, GAP’s legal experts have taught law students at UDC Law School (and its predecessor Antioch Law School) how to advance government and corporate accountability by representing employee whistleblowers and assisting in efforts to expose abuses of authority and threats to public health, safety and the environment.


Internships & Externships

GAP welcomes undergraduate, graduate and law students to work with us as interns or externs for credit throughout the year.
