GW Moves to a Virtual Learning Period for Spring Semester
In an effort to protect the health and safety of the GW community, the University will shift from on-campus classes to a virtual learning period through the end of the spring semester. All on-campus events are canceled through the end of the semester.
Please visit GW’s COVID-19 Resource Page for information about changes to university services.
NRC OFFICE TO BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Following GW guidance on the ongoing COVID-19 situation, leadership and staff for the Sigur Center, Institute for Korean Studies, and the East Asia National Resource Center have agreed to close the office from Monday, March 16 until further notice. This closure is designed to prevent non-essential gatherings on campus which could facilitate the spread of the virus, including those in our suite. To this end, the institutes have also cancelled all public events for the remainder of the semester. We will be closely monitoring the public health situation over the next few weeks, and will notify you when we plan to continue our scheduled programming.

The ensuing civil and military investigations bring to light persistent resentment going back many years on both sides about the human toil of accommodating long term military occupation. -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #gwu #elliottschool #nrc #eastasianstudies #eastasia #currentaffairs #history #politics #internationalpolitics #asahishimbun #nhk #film #japan
