Woodrow Wilson Scholar Program
The center oversees Goucher College's participation in the Woodrow Wilson Scholar Program, which connects a liberal arts education to the professional world by bringing thoughtful and successful practitioners to college campuses for a week of classes and informal discussions with students and faculty.
