President's Office Steven James

Steven James

Welcome to Goddard College

I am honored to serve as the Acting President of Goddard College while the Board of Trustees conducts a national search for the next Goddard President. Since 1993, I have taught here and led academic initiatives, including many years as the Chair of the Psychology and Mental Health Counseling Program.

In this time of transition, I will focus on providing continuity to the College’s community of students, staff, faculty, alumni, and neighbors.

As you may know, Goddard is a special place for all of us. Our model of low-residency, self-designed, and student-directed education is not only ideal for mature adult learners, but it is transformative as well. Our students explore deeply the disciplines and problems that ignite their passion, through rigorous inquiry guided by our experienced and supportive faculty. Our alumni take that experience into the world and work with deeper levels of creativity and curiosity.

I am excited about the future of Goddard College.

I invite you to work with us, request more info about enrolling, join a vibrant network of alumni, or learn more about our academic programs.

With warm regards,

Steven James, PhD
