New January Term to Offer Exciting Learning Opportunities
Progress continues on the development of Guilford College’s January term. This optional three-week experience was approved to begin, as a pilot, in 2013.

Additional details will be provided in the coming months.
The January term’s vision is to immerse students and faculty in intensive educational experiences not normally offered during the traditional semester/summer school with the explicit goals of encouraging self-motivated independent learning and the ability to understand issues and concepts in action. Experiences should lend themselves to pedagogy that is intentionally experimental and/or innovative in nature. Projects and activities include: civic engagement, internships, seminars and projects, study away and undergraduate research.
The January term is part of The Strategic Plan for Guilford College 2011-2016: Outcomes of a Guilford Education and its focus is on learning outcomes, preparing students for life after Guilford, and a principled approach to experiential and integrative learning. It builds on the College community’s dedication to students‘ intellectual transformation and spiritual growth.
