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 Fall semester and require all employees to telework.

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.
