A Message to the Goddard College Community

June 2, 2020

Dear Goddard Community,

We send our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless other victims of systemic racism. Their deaths painfully  remind us of the institutionalized devaluing and dehumanizing of Black Americans.    

As an historically white institution committed to social justice, we have much work to do. These recent events have deepened our resolve to address racism, work beginning within our own community. We cannot remain silent amid acts of racism, injustice, brutality, and violence. We will seek to further embrace anti-racism. We will work together toward the first priority in our strategic plan; a diverse, equitable and responsive culture. We must extend our efforts to make Goddard College a place of compassion, equity, and justice; and we will deepen our commitment to making it a learning community where there is no place for racism.

We are hosting a Goddard College community virtual meeting on Friday, June 5 at 3:00 – 4:30 PM EST, along with a Circle of Councils meeting on Friday, June 12 at 4:00 PM EST, both as times to hold space together, to support, mourn, and explore how we might take further action. 


Bernard Bull

President of Goddard College

Gloria J. Willingham-Touré

Chair of the Goddard College Board of Trustees

Important Announcement

The Board of Directors for Goddard College have made the difficult decision to close the college at the end of the 2024 Spring term.  


Current Goddard students will have the opportunity to complete their degrees at the same tuition rate through a teach-out with like-minded institution, Prescott College. Updates and scholarship funds will be available in the coming weeks and months. Information will be posted to www.goddard.edu
