The mission of Goodwin College is to educate a culturally diverse student population in an environment that builds bridges between education, commerce and community. Our degree and certificate programs prepare students for professional careers while encouraging lifelong learning and promoting civic responsibility. The College offers certificates, associates and bachelor degrees. In the fall of 2013, over 3,000 students enrolled in our programs. The College also recently opened its Early Childhood Magnet School, the new home of our magnet high school, The Connecticut River Academy, and the new home of Pathways Academy of Technology and Design, a Hartford Public High School.
Goodwin College is proud of its workforce: faculty and staff members representing a wide range of talents and backgrounds, all committed to student success.
The annual spring Commencement ceremony celebrates the spirit that faculty and staff members put into their work throughout the year.
Among the many events that celebrate student achievement are the pinning ceremonies for nurses, led by Department Chair Jan Costello.
The main Goodwin College campus has reconnected surrounding communities to the beautiful Connecticut River.
