Creative and resilient leadership for global engagement
The Global Honors Scholars program prepares students to provide Christ-honoring leadership in a multicultural world. Global Honors Scholars will form a tightly knit cohort that will learn and travel together through their four years at Gordon College. Through honors seminars, retreats, international travel, cultural and multicultural experiences, and faculty mentors students will be prepared intellectually and spiritually for Christ-honoring leadership in a global context.
What does it involve?
“The Global Honors Scholars program opened opportunities for me to use my research in French and International Affairs to impact others around the world within my first year in the program. I was given exclusive access to conversations with experts to learn first-hand how they integrate their faith and studies effectively. The focus on the Bible and academic rigor, in the context of the cohort, enabled me to debate issues, learn from a range of perspectives, and meet my closest friends. By participating in the Global Honors Scholars program, I have become equipped with the skills, experiences, and community to foster a mindset that can lead others with creativity, resilience, and God-honoring behavior.”

“The Global Honors Program, for me, is more about the people you meet and interact with than anything else. The administrators and professors have shown me the utmost kindness since the moment I stepped on campus and are truly invested in the well-being of my present and future. Through the program, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and talk to a myriad of first-rate scholars and professionals, and the ensuing conversations have had a permeating impact on my college experience. I’ve also been able to cultivate meaningful relationships with many of my peers within the cohort and I personally believe that they are among the most valuable rewards of participating in this honors program. The personal connections I have made through this program are blessings I will cherish and hopefully continue to develop even beyond my four years at Gordon.”
