Celebrating 200 Years: Resilience, Recovery, and Reform - Education and Human Development in a Post-Pandemic World


Online - Zoom 

Event Description

At the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD), we believe that education is key to fulfilling America’s promise of equity and justice. In 2020, COVID-19 shined an even brighter light on the educational inequities across the United States and around the world. In response, the GSEHD community has mobilized with innovative thinking, action, and compassion during a crisis.

Join us for a conversation with GSEHD experts about the challenges, opportunities, and lessons we are learning during the pandemic. How will we re-imagine education to address the disparities in the system? Rather than returning to the status quo, is it possible to provide a better experience for all students?

This event is open to all members of the GW community. Please register your attendance in advance. Please note this event will take place at 5:00pm ET.
