In November, Goucher College, Hood College, and Washington College, held Training Ms. President (TMP), a workshop to assist young women interested in running for elected office. The Workshop, hosted at Goucher College, was a second annual event. TMP was launched in 2015 by professors Mileah Kromer (Goucher College), Christine Wade (Washington College), and Melissa Deckman (Washington College) to encourage young women to pursue political careers.
The ten members of the Baltimore Area Higher Education Co¬alition against Sexual Violence — including MICUA members Goucher College, Loyola University Maryland, McDaniel College, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Notre Dame of Maryland University, and Stevenson University — together have won a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.
For the 2018 fiscal year, MICUA is requesting $9.9 million in State capital grants to support construction and renovation projects at Goucher College, McDaniel College, and St. John’s College. These projects will address strategic academic initiatives on each campus including STEM education, new academic program development, and enrollment growth. They also support the liberal arts mission of each institution through creating academic facilities that promote engagement in teaching and learning and maximize opportunities. Collectively, these three projects will support over 300 new construction jobs in Maryland and leverage $30 million in private investments.
