Goodwin College is a nonprofit institution of higher education and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Goodwin College was founded in 1999, with the goal of serving a diverse student population with career-focused degree programs that lead to strong employment outcomes.
Operating under an open-access model, Goodwin College seeks to admit all students who have academic potential, regardless of past performance. The College then supports these students with counseling and tutoring to help them succeed. As a result of this inclusive approach, Goodwin College is one of the most diverse colleges in the state, with over half of its students being the first in their families to pursue higher education.
In 2010, Goodwin College extended its educational vision to the secondary level, constructing the Connecticut River Academy magnet high school. In 2013, another magnet high school and an early learning magnet school were under construction at the campus.
While our students come from diverse backgrounds, they are united by a singular purpose — improving their lives through education. Throughout 2011, as our enrollment has increased, we have continued the face-to-face service and career-relevant opportunities that our students have come to expect by expanding student service departments such as Career Services and Academic Advising.
