Safety First: Access Control In a Pre and Post COVID19 World

Presenter: Emily Dieker, Director, GWorld Card Office, George Washington University


At the George Washington University the top service priorities are Safety, Care, and Efficiency. Putting safety first, GW has made several major investments in access control over the past year including residence hall suite readers, exterior readers on all buildings, classroom readers, and lockdown buttons. Learn how these investments have prepared the campus for changes in operations due to COVID-19.

Discussion Questions:
