Goucher College is an educational community that strives to integrate personal, intellectual, and physical growth through participation in a number of disciplines. The physical education, intercollegiate athletics and recreational sports programs are very much a part of these traditions. These programs provide activities that are physically wholesome, mentally stimulating, and socially satisfying, while attempting to integrate athletics and recreation with the total educational experience. The Department cares about the health and welfare of each of the students involved in the program. The Department acknowledges that to promote the character development of its intercollegiate participants, and to enhance the integrity of higher education and promote civility in society, we have an obligation to ensure that all program participants adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, civility, honesty, responsibility and the fair and equitable treatment of men and women. This is accomplished through the establishment of departmental and team policies, ongoing educational efforts, and the clear articulation of our expectations of good sportsmanship and ethical conduct.

The emphasis for programs in the Physical Education and Athletic Department at Goucher College is a commitment to excellence while striving for competitive greatness. By-products of this quest for competitive greatness for the professional staff and the participants are: development of personal character, integrity, dedication and commitment, cooperative learning, and a sense of progress and accomplishment
