GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, celebrates highlights from the gallerys history and the universitys extensive art collection and new gifts of work by Howard Hodgkin and Holly Trostle Brigham. Past exhibitions highlighted in the new show fall into three categories: historical, thematic, and major modern and contemporary artists. Collaborations include an exhibition with the Picker Art Gallery, Colgate University, followed by collaborations with the Reading Public Museum, Demuth Museum, Stetson University and New Art Centre in UK, among others have extended the ability to show artists of international scope. Beginning with Epic Paintings in 2002, ongoing relationships with New York institutions and major artists have brought the GW Community into contact with art never before seen in Washington. By joining university-wide initiatives, such as in Imagination and Knowledge: Centennial Celebration of Einsteins Miraculous Year, when Einsteins personal effects were on view alongside photographs of the man, scientific input from the Physics Department enriched the educational impact of the initiative. Exhibitions such as Enlightened Thinking, Lasting Appeal responded to a citywide celebration of French culture and featured Henry Bacons The Boston Boys and General Gage 1775, a major work in the GW collection. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of doctor of fine arts from GW in May 2004, has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees and received the Presidents Medal in 2015. Over the past 15 years, the gallery has created a niche in the community fo...
Scraps presents the work of three designers who have pioneered creative approaches to recycling textiles: Luisa Cevese of Riedizioni in Milan; Christina Kim of Dosa in Los Angeles; and Reiko Sudo of Nuno in Tokyo. Organized by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
Free Tango Class from 2:30-3:30 and a practice session from 2:30- 5 in District House B132 on Alternate Saturdays (2nd, 4th and 5th) Come learn and enjoy some Tango on saturdays. Practica is great to brush up the new moves you learn on Thursday's Tango class. GWU Argentine Club is hosting the infamous MLK practica. We have a free beginner class 2:30-3:30 and general practice from 2:30-5PM. Practica is an informal session for people to practice and learn together. One of the best things about Tango is that it is a very diverse and supportive community. NOTE: Here are the specific Dates: 09/09/17 , 09/23/17 ,09/30/17, 10/14/17,10/28/17,11/11/17, ,11/25/17 ,12/09/17 ,12/23/17 and 12/30/17
Join members of the George Washington University community in honoring the memory of the nine GW alumni who died in the September 11 tragedy as well as all of those who lost their lives as a result of the attacks that day. The ceremony will include a university-wide moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. We ask that if you are not attendance at this event, to the extent possible, all members of the GW community pause in their academic and professional activities for one minute at this time. The carillon bells on the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses will toll for the duration of the moment of silence. This event is open to the entire GW community and all friends of the university. The rain location is Marc C. Abrahms Great Hall at the Marvin Center, First Floor, 800 21st Street, NW, Foggy Bottom Campus. For further information, call (202) 994-7129 or email
For years, portions of the historical east facade of the U.S. Capitol, dating to the dawn of the nation’s republic, sat decaying in Rock Creek Park. Hear how independent researcher Aaron DeNu took interest in the overlooked original stones, learned of their connection to enslaved African Americans, and helped get the stones into the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required.
Learn more about the M.S. Data Analytics program at GW's School of Engineering & Applied Science. Tips for submitting successful applications will also be discussed. The presentation will conclude with any questions from attendees. RSVP:
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH 2017 Research Seminar Series The Critical Role of Climate Change Litigation and Opportunities for Public Health Sabrina McCormick, PhD, MA Associate Professor, Environmental and Occupational Health Milken Institute School of Public Health at GW Our research on all climate litigation from 1990 to 2016 explores the critical role of the judiciary in climate policy, especially in the context of current political affairs. Based on extensive qualitative and quantitative investigation, we identify who's winning and losing, why, and how, as well as how the public health community can be playing a role. Date: Monday, September 11, 2017 Time: 12:30 pm -1:30 pm Location: 4th Floor Conference Room, 950 New Hampshire Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20052 WebEx: Phone: +1-855-282-6330 Access Code: 730 208 452 All are welcome - A light lunch will be provided following the seminar- RSVPs strongly encouraged.

Blackboard: Using Rubrics   12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Blackboard! Have you ever had students wondering why they got a certain grade on their assignment, or what their grade was made of? Consider using Blackboard rubrics. A Blackboard rubric lists evaluation criteria for a graded activity. Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment. Instructors can use rubrics to assess the students consistently against a set of criteria, and to explain their evaluations to students. This workshop will cover the basics of Blackboard rubrics. Participants will learn how to create a rubric, associate it to a graded activity and effortlessly grade using an interactive rubric. Instructor: Trish Arnold Please register here.
Blackboard: Grade Center   2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join the Instructional Technology Lab to learn about Grade Center in Blackboard! Participants will have the opportunity to learn about and practice adding Columns, Managing Categories, Smart Views, and Distributing Weights in the Grade Center. Instructor: Trish Arnold Please register here.
Abstract Big first order phase transformations in solids can be highly reversible, if the lattice parameters are “tuned” to satisfy certain relations that promote the compatibility between phases. We outline the basic theory behind this tuning and give examples of recently discovered alloys. One of these alloys has thermal hysteresis as low as 0.2 C despite having a 6% transformation strain. Another very recent example exhibits exact reproducibility of full stress-induced hysteresis loops even after 10 million cycles of stress-induced transformation, at a peak tensile stress (each cycle) of 400 MPa. We use this kind of tuning to find some interesting new reversible multiferroic Heusler alloys: briefly, ferromagnetism is sensitive to lattice parameters, and so, at a martensitic transformation, ferromagnetism can be switched on or off, and ferroelasticity comes for free. These alloys can be used in several ways for the direct conversion of heat to electricity, and provide interesting possible ways to recover the vast amounts of energy stored on earth at small temperature difference.
