GW’s public-private partnership with Arlington County has brought baseball, community development and revenue to Barcroft Park since 1993. With $3 million in refurbishments in 2012 and a 20-year agreement, GW will pay all upgrade costs, split annual maintenance costs with the community and provide local residents with access to the park 75% of the time.
The 21,000 square feet Discovery Hall is the newest addition to VSTC’s campus innovations. Discovery Hall is equipped with teaching wet labs and related facilities, a physics scale-up lab, and a multi-purpose video-teleconferencing classroom (VTC) that will hold a minimum of 60 people and student study and gathering spaces.
New Nursing Simulation Lab
In 2015, GW cut the ribbon on its new Johnson Lab, a 3,000-square-foot virtual hospital populated by static and mid-fidelity mannequins that simulate patients—from infants to the elderly. The lifelike mannequins help nursing students practice the full scope of their clinical work and become among their profession’s best-trained leaders.
GW Center for Data Analytics
In 2015, GW and Telos Corporation signed a five-year agreement to support research and development projects that use high-performance computing to focus on key issues of national significance: cyber and physical security, and how algorithms and analytic tools can solve some of the major challenges facing the United States.
