A Message from the Program Director

Judy CohenWith the new year, we at the Welch Center for Graduate and Professional Studies welcome this auspicious opportunity to explore new possibilities. As we seek to contribute toward Goucher's reputation of being a college that changes lives, I would like to introduce the Sage Academy for Lifelong Learning, and I am delighted to be the pioneering director. 

It is through Sage that we have the chance to think creatively, experiment with new ideas and concepts, and stretch beyond our comfort zones as we ask, "What's possible?" The answer: Sage Cafe!

During this inaugural phase of Sage, participants will have the opportunity to delve into a broad range of interesting topics and interact with a wide array of community thought leaders, including Goucher faculty, staff, students, and/or professionals in the field. Imagine: exploring the Hubble telescope and its stunning photographic imagery, outsmarting smart technology, yoga and meditation, and discovering just why Shakespeare became a household name. 

Feedback from these presentations will be used to shape the future of Sage as we look to offer fully-developed programs beginning in Fall 2019. 

As a nascent organization, Sage will become what its participants want it to be through their input and involvement. Yes, the possibilities are exciting, wide-ranging, and virtually endless. 

So, come along for the journey - join Sage Cafe, bring your ideas and enthusiasm, suggest topics you'd like to explore together, share your expertise, and imagine the possibilities!

I look forward to sharing this adventure with you!
