Goddard College is an intentionally small and personal community of roughly 750 students. Slightly over two-thirds of the students are pursuing graduate degrees. Goddard has a remarkable, diverse population and is committed to increasing this diversity. About two-thirds of our students are female, and about 15% of Goddard students identify themselves as members of ethnic or racial minorities.
Goddard students come from almost every state in the U.S. and, internationally, from as close as Canada and as far as Pakistan. The top five states from which the College draws its students include Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, for our Vermont campus; and from Washington, and California for our two Washington state campuses. With over 115 faculty, Goddard offers an exceptionally low student to-faculty ratio of 1:8.
Goddard's historic main campus is located in Plainfield, Vermont, ten miles east of Montpelier, the Capital of Vermont, and approximately 45 minutes from Vermont's largest city, Burlington. The college also offers degree from residency sites in Port Townsend and Seattle, Washington. Click the links below to read more.
