Announcing Our Center’s New Name

We are thrilled to announce our Center’s new name: The Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service.

Our namesake, Dr. Nashman, is associate professor emerita of sociology and human services. During her 50-year career at GW, she was an early-adopter of service-learning and laid much of the foundation for the University’s current programs. She co-founded the Center itself in 1993.

President Steven Knapp announced to the gathered audience at the annual Freshman Day of Service and Convocation that Dr. Nashman and her husband Alvin E. Nashman have made a major financial donation to the Center. At the event, Dr. Nashman remarked,

“I hope this will expand current programs, help us work more closely with the community and neighbors and make a difference in working toward community development, human rights, social justice and true inclusion.”
