Diversity representation

Our students, faculty, and staff form a diverse community, and the University maintains that activities, programs, and everyday interactions are enriched by acceptance of one another in an environment of positive engagement and mutual respect.

“Goodwin’s diverse student body opened my mind and impacted my way of thinking. People ranged in age, race, gender, and ethnicity, and it was a safe and enriching environment.”

AccessAbility Services

The Office of AccessAbility Services (OAS) collaborates with Goodwin’s diverse community to ensure that all aspects of campus life — learning, working, and living — are universally accessible.

Each building on campus has flat entrances or ramps and automatic opening doors. Additionally, each building has handicapped accessible parking for convenience and ease.

Gender, sexual orientation and Title IX

Goodwin University strives to raise awareness through clubs, events, and informational sessions for the LGBTQ+ community as well as domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault awareness that include information about how to support persons who identify as LGBTQ+.

Religious representation and observation

Goodwin faculty are strongly encouraged to plan assignments and examinations with religious observances and holidays in mind. If an examination, quiz, or in-class assignment should occur on a religious observance or holiday, faculty members are advised to permit students to make up the exam, quiz, or assignment within a reasonable time.
