Meet the Presidential Fellows
Their hometowns are as far-flung as Ibadan, Nigeria; Moscow, Russia; and San Diego, California. Their majors and future plans are similarly wide-ranging. On campus they are A. J. Gordon Fellows, Pike Scholars, leaders in student government, athletes. Off campus they’ve worked or interned for organizations including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Hope Africa Collective.
All are Gordon College Presidential Fellows, the third cohort in this innovative leadership honors program. Modeled on the highly competitive, highly effective White House Fellowship, the Gordon College Presidential Fellows Program affords Gordon students the chance to work directly with one of the College’s Cabinet officers (known as the Fellow’s “Principal”), who mentors the student through a yearlong fellowship. Through their substantive work assignments and special mentoring opportunities, the Fellows learn firsthand what it’s like to lead a major institution.
