At Goucher, we pride ourselves on being a diverse and inclusive campus. Our commitment to diversity, in all of its forms, is demonstrated by both our Community Principles and Diversity Statement. Our commitment is futher highlighted by the Diversity Standing Committee and the Committee for Multicultural Programming. These committees focus on the needs of our students, and promote understanding and awareness across the campus community.
