Countdown to success.
The LAUNCH Network is an invitation-only program designed to offer invitees the support services, skills development, and community building designed to help you accomplish your goal of earning a degree and becoming who you are meant to be!
The LAUNCH Network is an integrated, four-year program offered at no charge. It is designed to welcome new students to Goucher, to help them transition to college, to support them throughout their journey at Goucher, and to propel them into a successful career with a lifelong network that lasts well past graduation.
We recognize that not everyone comes to college on an equal footing. The LAUNCH Network supports students who may face unique challenges and ensure that they can access the resources necessary to flourish at Goucher.
