The Board of Trustees develops and advances Gordon College's mission and goals. It ensures the institution is well managed, provides for adequate resources, and maintains good relations with all constituencies, on campus and across the globe. It appoints and evaluates the president (who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the College), approves and monitors the implementation of institutional strategy and policies, provides accountability and preserves the autonomy of the institution.
The Gordon College Board of Trustees is a small, working board that makes substantial demands of its members. Each trustee assigns a high priority to a stewardship role with a commitment to the strengths, traditions and values of the institution and pledges to act in the best interests of Gordon and uphold the integrity of the Board of Trustees.
The Board meets at least three times each year. Members of the Board are elected to terms of four years, subject to an overall limit of 16 consecutive years of service.
