Goucher College is dedicated to a liberal arts education that prepares students within a broad, humane perspective for a life of inquiry, creativity, and critical and analytical thinking.
Become the model for accessible, transformational education that integrates curricular and co-curricular learning to deliver graduates who can solve complex problems together with people who are not like themselves.
The college's principal objectives are to help each student master significant knowledge and skills while developing an appreciation for individual and cultural diversity, a sense of social responsibility and a system of personal and professional ethics.
Goucher believes these goals are best achieved in an environment that responds to students both as individuals and as members of multiple groups. Accordingly, education at Goucher is based on an expanding sense of community--a community where discourse is valued and practised, where students attend small classes and interact closely with faculty and one another, and where students can participate in and lead extracurricular programs.
