Gordon College Mission Statement:
Gordon College joined the University System of Georgia in 1972 as an associate level institution with a distinctive legacy of excellence in scholarship and service. From its founding in 1852, Gordon has grown and changed, not only in response to, but also in anticipation of, the educational needs of its community. Gordonís scope of influence now extends beyond the surrounding rural areas to include the rapidly growing suburban areas south of Atlanta, east of Columbus, and north of Macon. This area of Georgia is a community in flux, rural yet suburban, rich in diversity, reflecting the extremes in economic and population growth. Gordon College exists to provide educational and cultural opportunities both within and beyond this area. The mission of Gordon College, therefore, is to: 1. Prepare students for transfer into and success in baccalaureate and professional degree programs through the college transfer program; 2. Prepare students for entry into and success in specific occupations and careers through the Associate of Science in Nursing and Associate of Applied Science degree programs; 3. Strengthen the academic skills of students otherwise unprepared for entry-level college work through the Learning Support program; and 4. Serve the community by providing opportunities for life-long learning and professional development through Community Service programs. Gordon College is dedicated to providing a superior climate of learning through excellence in instruction, attention to studentsí needs, and cooperation with other agencies to enhance Gordonís own resources. The College further commits itself to assembling a faculty with excellent credentials that is dedicated to teaching and active in the pursuit of scholarship.
