Just ask any real estate agent—location is everything. Gordon’s location provides a perfect vista to experience the beauty of New England on the ocean, proximity to the nation’s most important cities and the potential for global access and opportunity.Boston is the global hub of higher education—this is where the world comes to study. Gordon College is strategically located in proximity of the cultural centers of education (Boston), finance (New York) and politics (Washington)—a region that sets the standard for the world. Boston also has a reputation as a leader in developing talent—which means greater opportunity for students who study here.
On the Leading Edge
By virtue of our location, Gordon College is connected with some of the most vibrant workplaces in the country. Boston is home to burgeoning biotech, finance, education and engineering industries—among many others—career paths that Gordon students can explore through a range of internships and educational partnerships. Connections like these provide the essential first experiences that can direct graduates toward successful careers in their fields.
Innovation + Knowledge
We are not simply beneficiary of Boston's ever-advancing academic explorations: Gordon is a major contributor to the discourse. Faculty, such as biology professor Craig Story, take Gordon students to the leading edge of their discipline. Dr. Story and his students recently worked alongside colleagues at MIT researching “microengraving”—a process which could eventually help researchers develop and test new vaccines for diseases including HIV, fungal infections and antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
Gordon is a place where faith meets the world. In the important work of Christianity’s engagement with the world of ideas, Gordon aspires to stay on the vanguard—at the tip of the spear.
Our faculty and students are poised to enter the dialogue with some of the world's brightest minds—who are on campus regularly—as leaders of Christian thought and cultural engagement, faithfully working to address the watershed issues affecting this generation and those who will follow.
