Formed in 1999 as a non-governing body of the Goucher College Board of Trustees, the Committee of Visitors draws its membership from a mix of corporate citizens, nonprofit and foundation executives, Goucher alumnae/i and parents, and other individuals committed to the college's educational mission. The duties of chairing the committee are shared by President Sanford J. Ungar and Trustee Emerita Fern Karesh Hurst '68.

The Committee of Visitors functions as an advisory board, observing the impact of the college's programs and initiatives and serving as advocates for the college in the world at large. Members of this diverse group are charged with:

  • promoting the college's heritage, goals, and programs within various constituencies;
  • counseling the president and administration on programs, services, and activities that will strengthen the Goucher community;
  • advancing the development of the college's resources; and
  • introducing others to significant programs and contributions made by Goucher students, alumnae/i, and faculty.
