Community Voices

Woods students bring a tremendous variety of life experiences, personal interests, and professional goals to campus. Together with our supportive faculty and staff, they make up our dynamic, welcoming community.

I went into the field of education because I know the power that a good education has in transforming individual lives and in changing our world. Leading Woods College, with its rigorous programs and its focus on ethics and service, allows me to use what I have learned about continuing and professional education to expand access to Boston College to students who will go on to lead change in our society.
Karen Muncaster, Dean of the Woods College of Advancing Studies
