Message from the President

Gary L. Wirt, Ed.D., Goldey-Beacom College President

"Achieve greater."

This is a powerful way of thinking - not a slogan - at Goldey-Beacom College. It is both a challenge and a commitment to every student to excel in studies, benefit from a rich campus life, and move forward into a rewarding career fully prepared for success.

We are proud of our heritage. We have provided robust, rigorous, and relevant education since 1886, meeting the needs of a world undergoing rapid and exhilarating change. We have made growth, change, and renewal hallmarks of our institution. This is evident in every aspect of Goldey-Beacom College, from faculty credentials to availability of newest technologies, from multi-media classrooms to apartment-style residence halls. You will encounter this commitment to excellence in every phase of our operations, from your initial interview to your ultimate career placement.

Take a few minutes - and a few clicks - to get to know us better. Compare our convenient degree programs, generous financial aid, four-day weeks, and easy scheduling. Our successes have made us confident, so we don't hesitate to urge you to compare us to other schools and their offerings. In education, "one size fits all" seldom works, so consider our small class sizes, individual support and attention, and extremely high career placement rate.

We strongly urge you to become part of our campus community, joining students from around the world and from just around the corner. Our alumni are found in over 65 nations and 28 of the United States. Here, you can join a community of scholarship, leadership, and friendship that will play a significant role in your life for many years to come.

Call us, visit us, and walk with us through campus as you get to know our greatest resource - our people! We hope to welcome you to the Goldey-Beacom College family. Here you will "achieve greater."
