Gordon’s Education Program Named Among Best in the Nation for Preparing Future Teachers to Teach Reading
The program is among just 48 nationwide and is the only program in Massachusetts highlighted by NCTQ for going above and beyond the standards set by literacy experts for coverage of the most effective methods of reading instruction—often called the “science of reading.”
This marks the first time Gordon has placed in this top national college production competition, which draws over 1,500 entries each year from some of the biggest, most well-known media colleges from around the nation.
Bachelor’s degrees were conferred on 294 undergraduate students, 149 of whom graduated with honors, and 145 advanced degrees were given to graduate students.
Prominent Christian philanthropists and longtime Gordon College benefactors Dale E. and Sarah Ann Fowler announced today a $26.5 million legacy gift commitment.
The first-ever team from Gordon to participate—and the first from a Christian college in the competition’s 59-year history—placed in all three award categories.
