Student Affairs

Engage! Explore! Evolve!

The Division of Student Affairs is dedicated to fostering student success in a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive learning environment. Student Affairs staff are educators and resources for our students but also collaborators with families and student support systems in supporting student success. We emphasize the developmental opportunities within the student experience to intentionally develop lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and social change agents.

We support the academic, social, and personal evolution of our students with a focus on developing a sense of belonging and mattering amongst our campus community through engagement and exploration. It is imperative to the Goucher College experience for students to engage in the variety of programs, organizations, and resources available. Students have multiple platforms to advocate for changes on campus, start a new club, or plan an event!

Students own their experience!

Our students matter and we CARE!
