New Director of Residential Life

Dear Goucher Community,

I hope this message finds you well and you are enjoying a wonderful start to the summer season. My name is Dr. Terence J. Turner (Dr. T or Turner is fine), and it is with great enthusiasm and honor that I introduce myself as the new director of residential life at Goucher College.

With about a month until Move-in Day, I want to take this opportunity to express how excited I am to join the Goucher community and work with your students to create a vibrant, supportive, and enriching living environment. At Goucher College, we believe that the residential experience is a crucial part of a student’s holistic development, and we are committed to ensuring that each student feels at home, supported, and empowered to succeed.

As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, I encourage both you and your students to use this summer as a time to recharge, refocus, and realign yourselves holistically. This period of rest and reflection is essential for personal growth and well-being. Encourage your students to take time for self-care, pursue their passions, and set goals for the year ahead. Whether it’s spending quality time with family and friends, engaging in meaningful hobbies, or simply taking a break to relax and rejuvenate, these moments of renewal will pave the way for a successful and fulfilling fall at Goucher.

I am eager to get to know our students and work collaboratively to foster a community that values inclusivity, engagement, and personal growth. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have as we approach the new school year. Your partnership is invaluable as we strive to create the best possible experience for your students.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of supporting your students during their time at Goucher College.

With gratitude,

Director of Residential Life
