In the fall of 2007, the College called for a campus-wide Principled Problem Solving (PPS) initiative. This initiative sought to strengthen the Guilford transformative educational experience by emphasizing the existence of PPS as a central theme in its academic programs. It can be seen as one thing that is shared throughout every classroom, within each student’s experience, in every meal, and from each department. Later in the same fall, the College established the Center for Principled Problem Solving to support the initiative and to promote and name that which is so essential to our College’s mission and functioning.
Dan and Beth Mosca of Brown Summit, N.C., and parents of two Guilford alumni, made a $2.5 million challenge gift toward the goal of a $5 million endowment for the Center for Principled Problem Solving. Dan Mosca, retired president of AdvoCare, is a former chairman of the Board of Visitors and formerly a member of the Board of Trustees. The Moscas also served as chairs of the Parents’ Executive Council and Parent/Family Co-Chairs of the “Our Time in History” capital campaign, completed in 2002. The Moscas will match dollar-for-dollar contributions from all trustees, alumni, and friends of the College. Please visit Guilford’s Advancing Excellence website to make your contribution today.
