    On Thursday, the George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs shared an article written by the school's Dean, Reuben Brigety, entitled "Donald Trump is a Nazi Sympathizer." In the article, published by Foreign Policy and promoted by the university, Dean Brigety explicitly calls the President of the United States "America's first Nazi-supporting president" and the "Nazi-in-chief." "For the first time in our history, a Nazi sympathizer occupies the Oval Office," Dean Brigety writes. "His comments during a press conference on August 15 in which he spontaneously reiterated his support for white supremacist protesters left the world slack-jawed in disbelief...

    George Washington University has changed its course requirements for history major to no longer include U.S. history, the College Fix reports. The university’s history department recently introduced new requirements with the stated aim of giving students greater flexibility to pursue their interests, and to “better reflect a globalizing world,” according to faculty. Requirements in U.S., North American, and European history were eliminated, along with foreign language. Incoming history major will be required to take at least one introductory course, and may choose U.S. history as option. However, like many other universities, GWU allows incoming students to place out of the...

    A Resident Advisor at The George Washington University (GWU) has some choice words for the more than 1,000 residents of Thurston Hall, the largest freshman dormitory on campus. A bulletin board on the first floor of the dorm was decorated with the theme “Check Your Privilege." A statement included on the bottom of the board states “Becoming aware of privilege should not be viewed as a burden or source of guilt, but rather an opportunity to learn and be responsible so that we may work toward a more just and inclusive world.”

    The George Washington University art school recently co-hosted a three-day gathering to discuss how art can influence “social justice,” culminating with pleas for a “Muslim refugee” to serve as president. . . “Democracy is a beloved concept across the globe and in the United States, it is sacred. So much so that it generally goes unexamined as a practice,” a description for the workshop states. “It is a fundamentally exclusive process and therefore easily corruptible,” the summary then declares, asking, “How can artists, political leaders, community activists, and citizens respond with more inclusive models for decision making?”

    George Washington University President Steven Knapp issued a statement through his office after a flag controversy flared up at one of the university dorm halls. A student, who is Palestinian, hung a Palestinian flag outside his dorm room window at Shenkman Hall. It was reported to the administration police department because it was prohibited that an object be hung outside windows on campus. The student complied and the police officer wrote a report. But, what happened was that the report triggered an automatic warning letter to the student. The student believed he was being unduly singled out for having a...

    Standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT are no longer required by George Washington University. In its weekly e-mail newsletter, the school proudly announced this shift in its admissions process. The move is effective August 1st, 2015, meaning that “those applying to GW for the 2016-17 school year will have the option to include” the test scores in their application or not to. What is the reasoning behind this? The school claimed the following: “High school coursework and grades will continue to be the most important factors in GW’s holistic review process, along with a student’s writing skills, recommendations,...

    WASHINGTON: Following outcry from several groups, a prestigious American university has decided to rescind its suspension order against a student who displayed a Hindu swastika on his residence hall's bulletin board. The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) welcomed the move to rescind the interim suspension order by the George Washington University (GWU). HAF associate director of public policy, Harsh Voruganti, said that the decision reflects the facts of this case and the efforts by Hindu organisations to educate campus officials about the sacredness of the Indian swastika. The small, bronze, swastika was displayed by the student on March 16 on a...

    Although frequently branded as far-Right, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s proposals, at least on the education front, are surprisingly middle-of-the-road, or at least are becoming mainstream. At least two of them are gaining acceptance in some surprising environs. The February 27, 2015 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education carries a headline which reads, “Republican governors seek big cuts at colleges.” Nevertheless, such heretical thoughts have gone well beyond the GOP Establishment. At George Washington University, “University President Steven Knapp sent a memo to GW community members on Monday, explaining that 5 percent budget cuts across campus stem from a decrease...

    His poll ratings may be in the basement and his policies might have mostly blown up in his face but there is one place where the president can still boost his self-esteem.

As their school newsletter, GWToday, noted: “Our students started lining up for the show outside Lisner Auditorium by 9 a.m. George Washington Today was there to capture what was Trending Today – the first in an ongoing video series on current events and issues.”...
