Funeral Service

Funeral Service program mission statement

The mission of the Goodwin University’s Funeral Service program is to facilitate the training of students to become funeral service professionals and to instill in our students the foundation of integrity, compassion, and moral ethics needed to be successful in our ever-changing contemporary society.

The Funeral Service department encourages independent thinking through practical application and modern technical instruction.

The Funeral Service department fosters the importance of community service, reverence and respect for the dead entrusted to their care, and empathy and compassion for the families they will have the privilege to serve.

Students will be encouraged and guided to adapt to secular and religious traditions while always being mindful of public health and cognizant of the importance of holding inviolate sacred and confidential information entrusted to them during their service to mankind.
