George Washington University




COVID-19 Update In order to help keep our multiple communities healthy, the Nashman Center has suspended all University-sponsored, in-person direct service and community engagement as well as Nashman Center in person events. This is done in concert with the precautions around transmission of the novel coronavirus issued by the CDC as well as GW's decision to move all classes online for the Spring semester and require all employees who can to telework through April 5.

Beginning March 23, 2020, we will convene online in Dialogues and Development on WebEx and Instagram Live events. Sign up here. Where possible, we encourage students to continue to serve the community, whether in DC or elsewhere, on a virtual basis. We are developing opportunities to connect and serve, you can see them here. In the meantime, we encourage you to abide by your local health department and jurisdiction advice to reduce virus transmission, while looking for opportunities to support others.

For the convenience of our communities, both internal and external, the University has established a centralized website for shared updates at Please visit this website for the most up-to-date guidance and information.
