Celebrating Diversity in the University Archives

Did you know that GW developed courses focused on firearms, camouflage and ship hull engineering to better educate the changing student body during WWI?
Or that the Columbian Women’s Association made a contribution to purchase a gram of radium for scientist Marie Curie?
Its amazing what you can find in the University Archives!

The inaugural cohort of University Archives Diversity Research Fellows—students Eden Orelove, Isabel Garcia, Tasha Dorsey and Dominic Amaral—spent an academic year combing through the University Archives to dig up these unsung stories, examining the lives of the nonacademic staff, women, international students and veterans who have contributed to GW’s history.

The fellows were selected by a committee of faculty and staff from the Special Collections Research Center at the beginning of the academic year and awarded a stipend. Funding for the program was supplied through an Innovations in Diversity and Inclusion grant from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
