As of March 16, 2020, President Thomas LeBlanc has instructed all George Washington University programs to cancel on-campus events for the remainder of the spring semester.

The Sigur Center for Asian Studies strives to reschedule lectures, panels, and conferences within the next school year. Please direct inquiries and/or suggestions to gsigur@gwu.edu for event-specific matters. The suite is closed until further notice and staff are teleworking until then.
