Responsive design

The Goucher website was designed to adapt to different screen sizes, regardless of Internet device. A compact, mobile-friendly version of the website should appear on handheld devices, while a more expansive layout should appear on tablets and larger computer monitors. Page formatting will change depending on the screen size, but all page content will be preserved.
