1: We will nurture
Grow and Sustain Our Resources
We will be thoughtful stewards of our most valuable resources: our people, our campus, our natural world. Our investments will reflect an ongoing commitment to equity and sustainability across of all of our programs, policies, and practices. Gordon will have a vital financial model that makes it possible for us to live into our mission for generations to come.
- Significantly grow our endowment and strengthen annual support to ensure Gordon’s long-term vitality and sustainability.
- Form strategic partnerships, locally and abroad, with schools, universities, corporations, and not-for-profit organizations to develop revenue sources beyond tuition and programs that support innovative teaching and learning.
- Create a Gordon Green Fund to finance sustainable building and maintenance projects that generate cost-savings and reduce environmental impact.
- Ensure that faculty and staff can continue to learn, innovate, and take risks by increasing professional development funding to the NAIS-recommended level of at least 1% of Gordon’s operating budget.
