Concerning GLBT Equality:
The Gordon College 2006-07 Student Handbook contains the following:
In light of the above assumptions and biblical principles of Christian conduct, the specific expectations which follow are established for students, faculty and staff of Gordon College. It will be noted that these behavioral standards distinguish between “Practices Governed by Scripture” and “Practices Governed by Consent of the Community for its Common Good.” The latter, which are established to enhance the quality of community living, are not to be confused with specific God-given directives which are required of all Christians.

The following behavioral expectations are binding on all members of the Gordon community.
1. Those acts which are expressly forbidden in Scripture, including fornication, homosexuality, adultery, drunkenness, theft, profanity and dishonesty, will not be practiced by members of the Gordon community, either on or off campus.
