CCAS Faculty Dean’s Office Events


WOWTALK (What’s our Work) series, a new twist on the influential TED Talks video podcasts, brings together colleagues from disciplines associated with GW's Science and Engineering Hall—and related fields—to present new research and share ideas. The monthly sessions include three 10-15 minute talks followed by an opportunity to tour SEH labs and discuss new technologies.

GW faculty and students from all schools, especially the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, Milken Institute School of Public Health and School of Medicine and Health Sciences, are welcome to attend or present a topic.

The WOWTALK series is designed to stimulate the kind of collaboration and innovation that will bring GW research to the next level!

CCAS Faculty Coffee And Networking (Faculty CAN)

The CCAS Faculty Coffee And Networking (Faculty CAN) is aimed at creating a platform for faculty to interact with each other to explore collaborative opportunities, and to create the kind of synergies needed for us to move forward. This will be a semi-regular event series run a few times a year; with a specific focus theme for each event. Suggestions on future themes can be sent to us at

Grantsmanship Workshop Series

In an effort to boost the competitiveness of grant and fellowship applications from CCAS faculty, we are pleased to offer the CCAS Grantsmanship Workshop Series, focusing on the techniques and strategies for successful grant and fellowship applications. We expect this event series to include panel discussions by experienced colleagues, presentations from funding agencies, as well as other types of events that could enhance the research and scholarship of CCAS faculty.
