瓦的 护理学院—ranked as one of the nation’s best—has its home and a vibrant presence at VSTC. 本科 and graduate nursing students, as well as community partners, put their knowledge into action in the Skills and Simulation Laboratories. In addition to preparing compassionate health care practitioners, the school is poised to transform health care delivery and policy locally, nationally and globally.
研究ers in the Earthquake Engineering and Structures Laboratory study buildings, 桥梁, power plants and other infrastructure systems to advance safe and stable building practices. 的 laboratory includes the 摇表, one of the most powerful earthquake simulators on the East Coast. 的 摇表 produces every motion that a building or structure may experience during an earthquake, allowing it to simulate the most severe earthquakes recorded worldwide over the last 100 years.
的 Avenir Foundation Conservation and Collections Resource Center is located on VSTC. This environmentally-controlled facility is designed for the long-term protection, study and care of the 的 George 华盛顿 University Museum and 的 Textile Museum’s collections. 22,000 square foot space provides storage, conservation and behind-the-scenes support for the public exhibitions and programs at the museum on 雾底校区.
