Dr. R. Judson Carlberg
President, Gordon College, Wenham, MA., M.Div. '65.
Dr. R. Judson Carlberg is the seventh president of Gordon College in
Wenham, Mass. and also serves on the Denver Seminary Board of Trustees.
He came to Gordon in 1976 as dean of the faculty, and under his
leadership the college’s faculty development program won national
recognition. In 1999, Jud was also one of 50 college presidents honored
by the John Templeton Foundation for leadership in character
development. Prior to Gordon, Jud held a number of posts at Michigan State University and later served as academic provost at John Wesley College in Owosso, Mich. “Students across the spectrum of higher education seem to be the brunt of sharp criticism from many quarters today,” said Jud. “I don’t share those negative perceptions, especially when it comes to Gordon College students. I find these young men and women not only want to lead, but also want to serve. Watching them grow from struggling adolescents to mature, young adults is one of God’s special gifts.”
