2024 Goucher Symposium

Each year, the ​College sets aside a day in the academic calendar to hold the Goucher Symposium, a celebration of student learning and scholarship.

On May 10, 2024, more than 150 students from across all of the college’s academic centers will share their talents, reflections, and research through displays, performances, and presentations. The wide range of student work includes presentations of original research in the sciences and humanities, advocacy for social justice, community-based projects, and creative works in the fine and performing arts.

The majority of presentations will also be live-streamed via Microsoft Teams. We invite all friends and family who are unable to join us in-person to sign-on and join in the celebration of our students’ work.
