Welcome to the the GW Arts & Research Publication
From humankind's first footprints to the study of gravitational waves, from molecules to behavior, from politics to prose, the pursuit of new knowledge always starts with questions, with the desire to crease, with the passion to explore. Faculty and students at the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences take full advantage of the breadth of scholarship within our departments, across the university, in our own community, and across the globe.
I invite you to take part in discovering what our faculty and students are questioning, creating, and exploring. In this publication, you'll read about the wonders of forensic science in detecting sexual predators, "green" chemists who are breaking new ground in the design of safe chemicals, statistical models to understand risk factors of alcohol addiction, the benefits—and risks—of barefoot running, and more. While it is only a slice of the multitude of scholarship and research we are engaged in, I am certain that you will understand our excitement, our pride, and our commitment to learning in every sense of that word.
To hear about all we are accomplishing in the areas of learning and research, I encourage you to contact us by email and join our Facebook (facebook.com/gwucolumbian) and Twitter (@gwucolumbian) communities. There is never a shortage of inspiring discoveries to share.
