Spotlight on Guilford College

Spotlight on Guilford College

Guilford College offers a practical education based on Quaker values since its founding in 1837. Today, it is home to 2,800 traditional-aged and adult students who are learning to be the world’s next generation of critical thinkers and principled problem solvers.

Guilford is well regarded for its innovative teaching by faculty who engage with and inspire students. The Center for Principled Problem Solving puts college core values of community, diversity, equality, excellence, integrity, justice, and stewardship to work in the world.

In its 175th year, Guilford is a vibrant liberal arts college for the 21st century, and is listed among “Colleges That Change Lives,” best value colleges, and the most environmentally responsible colleges in the United States and Canada.

Guilford puts its core values into practice through sustainability projects such as the LEED-certified historic preservation of Archdale Hall, the installation of 200 solar thermal panels on buildings across campus, and student-managed community gardens.
