Services and Technology
Academic excellence is essential to an outstanding educational experience, but no university can succeed without the services and technology that enable every student to use academic resources to the greatest extent. The George Washington University provides the technology, support and counseling that students require to reach their full potential, both as students now and as professionals in the future.
Academic Technologies is dedicated to advancing all aspects of the George Washington University's academic enterprise through the effective use of technology. Academic Technologies works with faculty, students and other GW units to proactively identify, develop, implement and support an ever-increasing array of technologies to enrich teaching and learning at GW, both in the classroom and beyond.
GW’s Career Center helps students navigate their own careers long before graduation, preparing for their futures through self-assessment, long-term planning, career information, employer connections and experiential learning in part-time jobs, internships and co-ops.
Disability Support Services
Through our Disability Support Services office, GW ensures that its more than 700 students with disabilities are able to participate fully in university life, derive the greatest benefit from their educational experiences and achieve maximum personal success. At the same time, students with disabilities are responsible for making their needs known and meeting the academic standards set for all GW students. In addition to customary academic accommodations such as extended time on exams and interpreting services, the office encourages students to develop individual working relationships with staff to address learning and disability management issues.
