Our world is divided. On one side, we find the familiar, the safe, and the comfortable. On the other, we see uncertainty, risk, and the promise that a step forward means nothing will ever be the same again. For more than 135 years, Goucher students have chosen to take that step and make a difference in the world.
Our students have overcome intimidating challenges when the stakes were high and stood alongside those society has ignored. They’ve had new experiences, challenged conventions, challenged each other, and even surprised themselves.
And they all start from a single place: Goucher College. They come to Goucher to take on big ideas in small classes. To open their minds and abandon prejudice. And they leave our leafy home to become global citizens.
A Goucher College education is a starting point, and it is a touchstone of the future.
The stakes have never been higher for a new generation seeking a balanced, transformative, and global educational experience. The human race faces significant challenges, and society will expect our graduates to answer world-changing questions—questions that have not even been asked yet.
With this strategic plan, our students will be ready.
