Learning about Guilford leads to a $3.7 million gift to the College


The late William and Myrtle Pickard did not attend Guilford. They never set foot on campus. But with every passing story they heard about Guilford from the grandfather of Zac Apple ’10, the Durham, N.C., couple began to fall in love with the College. On Aug. 18, the College announced a $3.7 million gift from the Pickard estate to Guilford, one of the largest bequests in the College’s history.

Envisioning Guilford College 2027


Guilford's new strategic plan, Envisioning Guilford College 2027, was endorsed by the College's Board of Trustees in late October 2023 and is in its initial phase of implementation. Read the latest version of the plan, which includes information about a query process focused on Quaker testimonies and our Core Values as well as a community-wide exercise to explore our "Why," what it means to be a liberal arts institution, commitments to transformation, inclusion and innovation and what it means to be an anchor institution.

2023-24 Bryan Series Season


There are heroes all around us, some more apparent than others. They may save lives or simply help make people's lives better. They may work to protect our freedoms, shine a light on ways we can do better, or lead us to explore new horizons. The Guilford College Bryan Series will present five heroes in the 2023-24 season, some of whom are well-known and others we will discover together, but all of whom have inspiring stories to share. Join us as we celebrate a year of "Heroes in Our Midst."
