Since 1885, Goucher has been a small college with a big view of the world. In 2006, it began to require that 100 percent of its undergraduates study abroad. Located just north of downtown Baltimore and 45 minutes from the nation’s capital, Goucher enrolls 1,500 undergraduate students from 45 states and 27 countries. The college offers 33 majors and six interdisciplinary areas for undergraduates. With an average class size of 17, Goucher professors know their students by name. Goucher students learn not only how to relate to different cultures but also how to function effectively within them through three-week, semester, or yearlong study abroad experiences. With 60-plus programs in more than 30 countries, the possibilities are boundless. Goucher's campus is also within easy striking distance of the major cultural, political, and economic centers of the East Coast. And our students use this location to their advantage to find internships during their studies and jobs after they graduate. Goucher students put their education into action through collaborative research in the natural sciences, service-learning programs that support local communities, and leadership opportunities on its unusually active campus. Goucher helps students become nimble, creative, confident, and capable of carving their own successes, which ids one reason it’s one of only 40 colleges to be included in the well-known guide Colleges That Change Lives. Through their language proficiency, international exposure, and internship experience (most students complete at least one), Goucher graduates offer employers distinct advantages in a quickly changing, increasingly global economy. That’s why 92 percent of Goucher graduates are employed or enrolled in graduate education within a year or less of graduation.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
