George Washington University, The (GW)


Self Description

December 2005: "The George Washington University, which celebrated its 175th anniversary in 1996, grew out of the desire of our country’s first President to establish a national institution of higher learning. When GW opened its doors in 1821 as Columbian College in the District of Columbia, it boasted three faculty members, one tutor, and 30 students. In 1904, the name of the institution was changed to The George Washington University....

Today, the University’s enrollment totals more than 19,000 undergraduate and graduate students in nine schools."

QUOTE: compelling [the suspect] to enter his password into his laptop would violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

QUOTE: If their offspring has stalked a peer or stayed in a mental-health clinic or been watched for suicidal inclinations at college, they want to know. Immediately.

Apr 25, 2007 OSHA Leaves Worker Safety in Hands of Industry

QUOTE: ...OSHA’s practices under the Bush administration, which vowed to limit new rules and roll back what it considered cumbersome regulations that imposed unnecessary costs on businesses and consumers.

Apr 17, 2007 How safe are college campuses?: The shootings at Virginia Tech may challenge a cherished culture of openness.

QUOTE: Already, Virginia Tech, where 32 people were killed Tuesday by a student who then killed himself, is under attack for not locking down campus after the first of two shootings.

Instead, some argue, universities must focus more on preventive measures like outreach and helping students identify early signs of trouble.

Sep 06, 2006 9/11 Leaves Its Mark on History Classes

QUOTE: Scholars disagree on the direction of the reframing of American history, sometimes along ideological lines. While many historians say 9/11 accelerated a push toward “internationalizing” American history — looking at what Thomas Bender, a professor of history at New York University, called “a common history with common causes for central events in American history” — some others said 9/11 had renewed their interest in an almost opposite idea, that of American exceptionalism.
