WHAT'S NEW, WHAT'S NEXT
On September 19, President Lindsay announced the launch of a campus community working group established to address many of the issues raised during the course of events this summer. This initiative was favorably received in a statement released on September 22 by the NEASC Commission on Institutions for Higher Education. Complete details can be found in the FAQ. This is one of several actions planned or already underway regarding discussion of the College’s positions related to sexuality, and issues around caring for LGBT students at Gordon. These include new sensitivity training for all residence hall staff and a yearlong program for faculty engagement and dialogue. Additionally, during Homecoming in October President Lindsay will conduct two listening sessions with alumni, including former student leaders, representing all perspectives to address concerns in more detail (these are invitation-only due to space constraints.)
