Written guarantee that Gordon College and affiliates won’t pursue legal action to gain or preserve partnerships with outside agencies, nor cooperate with other groups seeking to do so on its behalf.

On Saturday, August 30, the Boston Globe reported that Gordon College “has no desire to pursue a legal avenue to preserve the partnership" with Lynn Public Schools. We are asking that in addition to expressing the desire not to sue, Gordon College guarantee in writing that Gordon College and its affiliates will not pursue a legal avenue to gain or preserve partnerships with any outside agencies. As students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Gordon College, we recognize that pursuing legal action may win the battle of securing learning opportunities for students in the short term, but will lose the war of retaining Gordon College’s capacity to pursue genuine, mutually consensual partnerships. As students, we do not wish to participate in partnerships that are legally coerced; as alumni, we do not wish to be associated with an institution that takes such aggressive action against its neighbors; and as Gordon College community members, we believe that such an action would not reflect the love of Christ.
