As a Christian liberal arts college, Gordon embraces responsibility to protect and preserve the natural world through stewardship and environmental care, locally and internationally. The campus's rich natural environment, with its many acres of protected wetlands, is an excellent training ground for students interested in sustainability and environmental protection.Gordon College’s commitment to sustainability is fearlessly led by Restore Creation—an initiative led by the Physical Plant staff that also includes faculty, staff and students. Faculty members incorporate sustainability into academic coursework, lecture, and projects. Restore Creation strives to create a culture that cares about the environment and practices sustainability.
“Restore Creation captures the essence of our mandate as Christians. God has gifted us with a beautiful world and tremendous resources; it is our task is to conserve this environment in response to his grace. I am proud of the Gordon community’s continuing efforts to steward the gift of God’s creation.”
—President D. Michael Lindsay
