D. Michael Lindsay to Step Down as President of Gordon College After 10 Years

Gordon College president D. Michael Lindsay is resigning from his position and will step down next summer after having served in that capacity for a decade.

In a video message and a letter addressed to the college community that was released Wednesday, Lindsay said he will treasure his 10 years at the Massachusetts evangelical school but that for several reasons now was the time to move on.

“For over a year, I have been working on a book manuscript on major transitions in life, and during that process, I increasingly sensed that the book might be speaking to me directly,” Lindsay wrote in the letter.

“It was not a single epiphany, but over time, the idea of passing the baton to someone else took root in my heart and mind.”

The Gordon College head also said that several key milestones were about to be reached such as a 33% reduction in tuition as a result of a $75.5 million gift to the school. The school also raised nearly $50 million through its Faith Rising campaign.

Once 2020 is over, Lindsay hopes the season of Gordon College is remembered as the “game-changing tuition reset for students and their families.”

The tuition will be reduced to $25,250 and will go into effect in the fall of 2021. The annual “sticker price” — which includes tuition, room, board and comprehensive fee — is lowered from $50,650 to $37,950.
