Gardner went to Quincy, Massachusetts to become the principal of the Eastern Nazarene Academy and began teaching at the Eastern Nazarene College in 1920. During his time there, he became the college registrar and, upon the death of Floyd W. Nease, became president of the college.

There is today an "R. Wayne Gardner Memorial Scholarship in Mathematics" at Point Loma Nazarene University and a "Dr. R.

In addition, the Fowler Memorial Administration Building at Eastern Nazarene was renamed "Gardner Hall" in his honor.
