Coronavirus Updates

Goucher College and the Goucher Critical Incident Response Team are closely monitoring CDC and government guidelines and warnings about COVID-19/Coronavirus. We have been in contact with all of our students abroad as well as our study abroad partners and will continue to monitor the situation closely and send updates regularly. While Goucher remains committed to the importance of a global education, the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priority.
