Presenting: Gordon State College

The Board of Regents today approved changing the name of Gordon College to Gordon State College to better recognize its status among the 35 institutions of the University System of Georgia. The change takes place immediately. ’While Gordon will remain at the core of our identity, being able to include our state college status in our name communicates more clearly the progress we have made. The new name honors the history of Gordon while allowing us to look to the future,’ said Gordon State College President Max Burns. During a months-long process Burns sought input from the campus community and members of the greater community through a series of meetings, emails, personal conversations, and an open forum. There was also a portal on the college’s website that allowed input on the subject. A special advisory committee made up of representatives from the school’s various constituencies was also appointed and voted unanimously to approve the change. Granted state college status by the University System of Georgia in 2006, Gordon’s first four-year program, early childhood education, welcomed its first students in 2007. Since then an additional six, four-year degrees ‘“ nursing, English, history, mathematics, biology and health services and informatics administration ‘“ have been added. Gordon also offers more than 40 additional programs of study which are fully transferable to other USG institutions.
