Goodwin University is an innovative learning community that empowers hard-working students to become sought-after employees.

We tailor our programs to address the needs of employers, and we shape them to fit the lives of students. Classes are conveniently offered year-round — days, evenings, weekends, and online. Degrees may be flexibly layered across certificate, associate, bachelor's, and master's programs in a variety of in-demand fields.

Better still, we surround our students with the personal support and the professional guidance they need — not just to earn degrees, but to change lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Big Improvements, Small Adjustments

Close your eyes and think — what was the last TV advertisement you saw? Unlike the ads of past generations, today’s promos include diverse characters representing a broad range of identities — defying outdated, out-of-touch notions about American families. While increased visibility certainly is worth celebrating, countless opportunities to amplify diverse voices remain untaken.

Given that the state’s unemployment rate currently rests at about 4%, one might think these positions would fill quickly. Yet for many of those struggling to find work, these opportunities seem inaccessible.
