PAF Preceptors Say...

"I have had at least one PAF working in my office every year I have been here, almost 6 years now. Every PAF has demonstrated exceptional ability, knowledge and commitment. Perhaps even more important, PAFs have a strong and deep understanding of GW and they know how to connect the work of the Nashman Center with the mission and vision of GW as an institution. The PAF program provides more than just a single student serving, PAFs are connected to a strong community linking across the whole university, and they bring that community to our office.”

- Amy Cohen, Executive Director, Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service


"The Presidential Administrative Fellowship (PAF) program has been far more than a source of student labor: it has offered me a chance to develop future colleagues.  PAFs have served our museum as vital links to the student community and have earned the respect of our entire professional staff.  Our PAFs have gone on to launch promising museum careers and we expect to work with them as colleagues -- wherever their fortunes take them -- for many years to come."

- John Wetenhall, Director, The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum
