Lives Worth Leading

Story by Gordon College July 16th, 2015

This is the Heart of our experience

—to stretch the mind, deepen the faith and elevate the contribution that Gordon students make to the world around us. These elements illuminate how our individual stories relate to our collective mission—preparing men and women to provide faithful leadership and service for the common good. An investment in Gordon is a choice to live a life of purpose, worthy of the call God has inspired in each of us.


Lives of exploration

Gordon’s location offers a perfect vista to experience the beauty and rich learning environment of coastal New England. Our proximity to Boston—the global hub of higher education—connects you to a worldwide network of innovation and opportunity. Here, your classrooms extend well beyond their physical walls, encompassing a wealth of academic resources, culture and history.

Lives of Inquiry

At Gordon faith and knowledge are complementary, not contradictory. We stretch the mind through a challenging education that is both broad and deep, one that offers the freedom to ask and explore tough questions, while rooted in a committed Christian framework that informs all we do—from music composition to researching integrated pest management in our on-campus greenhouse.

lives of Faithfulness

Our commitment to faith provides a framework for the transformative pursuit of truth. We deepen the faith by integrating Christian belief and practice into all aspects of our educational experience, both on campus and globally. This is a vibrant community of believers, one where faith transforms us collectively and as individuals.

lives of adventure

International studies and missions opportunities offer students a global context for the ideas and passions they develop on campus. Many study abroad options—from Italy to the Balkans to China—are covered by financial aid, so you can focus on where you’ll go, not how to make it work. Gordon’s programs span the globe and emphasize service over self.

Lives of innovation

With over 50 student-led councils and clubs, students have the space and resources to bring their individual inspirations to reality. Artists and scientists regularly showcase their work and research, and the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership provides funding and mentorship to help students transform great ideas into new and noble ventures. It’s about instigating lasting impact.
