Community BuildingGoucher Connects

Goucher Connects is a one-day orientation event that connects incoming first year students to each other, to Goucher College faculty and staff, and to wonderful community organizations in the Baltimore area. The day is characterized by three important elements:

  • A morning program that explores Goucher College's civic history, and guides students through a dialog around  identity and interpersonal communication;
  • Collaborative work with community organizations in the Baltimore community;
  • Reflection on the importance of being an active citizen in one's community.

Our first Goucher Connects program took place on Friday, August 22, 2014. Over 550 members of the Goucher community engaged in a variety of environmental projects in area parks and neighborhoods.
