Early Childhood Education Club
The Goodwin College ECE Club is designed to provide students with the support and guidance needed to become involved in early childhood leadership. The students in the ECE club are committed to promote the welfare and education of young children. Our club strives to cultivate fellowship between local community organizations and the Goodwin College student body. Members of the Early Childhood club make a difference in the lives of young children and in doing so enjoy opportunities to develop leadership and communication skills. Our members have built strong friendships, professional development and community service opportunities, and a voice in their college career. Annually our club will elect officers, including a president, treasurer and secretary; each of these roles provides an excellent for career growth and networking here at the college and in the local neighborhoods.

The mission of the Psychology Club shall be to promote interest in psychology through social, academic and volunteer activities between students, faculty and the community. Membership in the Club is open to any student who is currently taking, or has taken, PSY112: Introduction to Psychology.
Respiratory Care Club (RCC)
The mission of the RCC is to promote enthusiasm and enhance a positive learning experience by building a supportive network and alliance between the students and the Goodwin College Respiratory Care program. Our vision statement is to build a strong relationship among peers, to provide opportunities for members to “give back” to the college and community, and to link the classroom to the community for a beneficial learning experience. The RCC tries to incorporate every student at Goodwin in events, not only Respiratory Care students, to help educate everyone in the importance of Respiratory health. A look into the club, this year in 2012 the RCC created a Goodwin Team for the Fight For Air Climb that takes place in March in Hartford. It is a great way for any student and their friends and family to make a difference, to learn, and to experience something new.
Paranormal Science Club
The Goodwin College Paranormal Science Club was established to offer the students, faculty and administration at the College an opportunity to research, investigate and discuss paranormal matters. In approaching these topics from a scientific point-of-view, the club will utilize the college’s educational resources in an effort to theorize these, as well as other cases presented to it. The club will meet on a monthly basis, and will attempt to conduct at least one off-site paranormal investigation each quarter.
