Student Handbook

Dear Students,

It is a privilege to have you as a member of the Gordon community. We look forward to getting to know you during your four years at Gordon. Our mission is that when you graduate you will be distinguished by intellectual maturity and Christian character, committed to a life of service and prepared for leadership worldwide. You will grow in these areas not only through your academic experience, but also by what happens in your residence halls, in student clubs, on the athletic field, on a missions trip, service outreach or musical performances. As you embrace opportunities to serve, engage, lead and thrive on campus, our community grows with you.

At Gordon, we seek to be a community that models grace and truth toward each other. Thus it is important that we have a framework that helps us do life together well at Gordon College. This Handbook is that framework for understanding the mission and purpose of the College, the commitments and responsibilities you have as a member of this community and the framework of policies and procedures by which we live out these ideals.

This Handbook is for you. We encourage you to read it and to ask questions when clarification is needed. While this Handbook has been carefully reviewed for correctness and completeness, the College reserves the right to correct errors and to modify as necessary. 

We are delighted you have chosen to be a part of Gordon College.
