Groups of students and faculty members from across disciplines collaborated to find immediate responses to the needs of health care professionals at GW Hospital. The group represented the Corcoran School of Art and Design, School of Engineering and Applied Science, GW Hospital, the GW Innovation Center, student organization George Hacks and others—who worked together to develop and manufacture much needed protective gear and protocols. Using a 3-D printing farm, they produced 200 face shields in under a week. 

Across the university, across disciplines and across programs, there's a group of really energetic people who are hustling to deal with COVID-19,” said James Huckenpahler, an adjunct digital lab instructor in the Corcoran.

GW Community Continues Service through COVID-19

The GW community has furthered their commitment to service by continuing volunteer efforts and service-learning projects throughout the pandemic. Amy Cohen, executive director of the GW Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service, said “students and faculty have worked hard to adapt their goals and continue to connect scholarship to service, taking their service online or serving their home communities in new ways.”


"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
