As a close-knit community of 315
students and 60
faculty, Burke ensures that each individual (and their family) is known and engaged.
Students have space to try new things, from a brand-new sport to a challenging new instrument or visual art. No one gets edged out
based on sheer numbers.
While not sprawling, our campus is a great size for us. Our buildings are full of light and personality
and provide quick access to the entire city
– so you will often find classes on the Metro, at museums, and on Rock Creek Park's paths.
In times of stress or uncertainty, this comparatively small size confers tremendous value
. We can adapt swiftly and creatively to change. We can adjust our supports
and resources as needed.
