Mission
Goucher College is a small college with a big view of the world, an intellectual community without boundaries. Here, students are prepared to embark on a life of inquiry and discovery, creativity, and analytical thinking; the expectation is that Goucher graduates will go on to make a positive difference in the world. At Goucher College, we are known for our academic rigor, our never-ending curiosity about the world around us; and the high caliber of our faculty, students, and staff. Goucher students are able to put their learning into action through collaborative research in the natural sciences, guest residencies of renowned professors, service-learning programs that support local communities, unique internships, and international study. Building on these strengths, our vision for a liberal arts education grows from the understanding that in the 21st century, every academic inquiry and intellectual endeavor has a global context. In all of our 31 majors, we encourage our students to explore their intellectual interests in ways that transcend the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Goucher's well-known study-abroad requirement, which comes with a great deal of curricular flexibility and a $1,200 stipend to help defray travel costs, is just one of the college's distinctive assets. Another is its Athenaeum: Part high-tech library, part public forum, part art gallery, part cafe, and many other parts, this new flagship building at the center of campus is "all Goucher." The Athenaeum assumes an integrated, harmonious place within a pedestrian-friendly, architecturally unified campus. The numerous, world-class lecturers who visit this beautiful campus every year give our students the opportunity to step up and ask important questions of important people. The college's environmental initiatives, both curricular and extracurricular, have derived much of their direction and momentum from the suggestions and activities of our students. And Goucher's greatest strength may well be its abiding sense of community, at once expansive and inclusive. For 125 years, Goucher has served a bright, bold, and motivated student population. Numbering some 1,480 undergraduates and representing 45 states and 24 countries, our students arrive at Goucher prepared to excel academically and eager to take advantage of the many resources offered on campus and in nearby Baltimore and Washington, DC. Our 287-acre, beautifully landscaped campus boasts comfortable residence halls, a modern athletic complex and playing fields, stables, and miles of wooded trails to fulfill our student explorers.
