Gordon staff, students, and faculty are tackling issues of sustainability and resource efficiency and working toward solving large scale ecological challenges. In the Fall of 2014, we began the Gordon College Sustainability Committee to support, enhance, and coordinate these efforts.

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 led by Restore Creation—an initiative led by the Physical Plant staff that also includes faculty, staff and students. Restore Creation strives to create a culture that cares about the environment and practices sustainability. 

We invite you to explore our actions, commitments, and initiatives, and to share your ideas for making Gordon College, and society, more sustainable. Please email thoughts and suggestions to .


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 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
