COVID-19 and Service

Nashman Center and Community Updates

We understand that the past few weeks have been challenging and stressful. The Nashman Center team remains committed to supporting our students, faculty, staff, and community through this time of virtual learning.

Effective March 23, 2020, all University-sponsored, in-person direct service community engagement has been suspended. In addition, multiple Nashman Center events have been canceled or postponed. These decisions have been made in the interest of protecting the health and well-being of our multiple communities.  

The GW community continues to serve the community in DC, nationally and internationally and have completed over 500 hours of service in response to COVID-19. Health professions students and faculty have formed a Volunteer Task Force with more than 500 members, doing contact tracing, supporting call centers, and much more. Undergraduate students have served meals at local shelters, transcribed historical documents for the Smithsonian Transcription project, picked up trash in their neighborhoods, created guides to the plants in their community, were trained and acted as peer counselors, and assisted their elderly neighbors with grocery runs. To find more virtual opportunities check out GWServes and input your service impacts here.
