For our students... It’s better here.

Those bold enough to join us on the journey – the healers, the caregivers, the protectors, the leaders, and the makers – will find what they’ve been searching for... here.

We care about those we serve and about why they’re here. We are a nonprofit college that reinvests your tuition dollars into your education and into continually improving the Goodwin experience for our students. We also award millions of dollars in institutional aid to our students each year to help them pay for college.

We believe the most important outcome of higher education should be a great career. Our programs are informed by the needs of Connecticut employers — we ask what they’re looking for, then design our programs and train students accordingly.

We believe in serving “non-traditional” college students. We understand the needs of all of our students and provide flexibility and support where many colleges don’t. Some students come to Goodwin from other colleges and universities, others are taking their first steps into the world of higher education or come to find a new career. All find a helpful and supportive environment.
