Learning to Grow
Guilford has a history of educating learners of all ages and backgrounds. From the Early College at Guilford which enrolls high school students who participate in college coursework, to traditional-age undergraduate students, to the Center for Continuing Education — the oldest adult education program in the state — Guilford works to address the needs of all students.
In addition to the listing of formal supports below, every student is paired with a faculty advisor from the time they enroll in classes. Together they work to identify areas of opportunities and resources for academic growth and professional development.
The Learning Commons (LC) helps students develop strategies for more effective and efficient learning across the curriculum and throughout their lives. The LC provides academic support for all students, including Early College, CCE, traditional, honors, under-prepared, students with special needs, students on academic probation, and those doing creative writing, advanced course work, or senior theses.
Guilford is proud of its support services for students with learning differences: we have a broad system of services that students find useful and encouraging. Our advisers work with students individually to help them carefully plan/balance their classes and schedules.
The Multicultural Education Department takes an inclusive approach as strives to educate and celebrate diversity and multiculturalism on the campus of Guilford College. As our staff and students seek to build bridges, both on campus and in the greater Greensboro community, we invite students to be catalysts for positive change by visiting with us and participating in programming and workshops sponsored by the department.
The first year of college is full of transitions and Guilford’s First Year Program fosters the academic, social and personal transitions necessary for successful participation in the total life of the College community. The First Year Program begins with the moment you choose Guilford, continues into Orientation and extends through your first year until you declare a major.
An Adult Transitions course is offered exclusively for first-term CCE students at Guilford College. The central focus of the course is to help adult students ease into the college experience and come to terms with the issues and opportunities involved in life changes. Students read autobiographies and write autobiographical essays as a means of working through these transitions.
CONFLICT HURTS, BUT . . . we believe working though it in a neutral, comfortable and safe environment strengthens relationships greatly. You don’t have to keep fighting, hiding or give up!
