Envisioning Guilford College 2027
Guilford College's five-year strategic plan, covering the years 2023 through 2027, will guide us in aligning our resources to support the achievement of our institutional mission to:
"Provide a transformative, practical, and excellent education that produces critical thinkers in an inclusive, diverse environment that is guided by Quaker testimonies of community, equality, integrity, peace, and simplicity and emphasizes the creative problem-solving skills, experience, enthusiasm, and international perspectives necessary to promote positive change in the world."
Led by President Kyle Farmbry, the planning process is community-driven and reflective of the College's Core Values and mission. Input to the process to date has been received from hundreds of faculty and staff members, students, alumni, parents and friends through surveys and small-group discussions, and now it is requested for the draft plan’s priorities, vision and goals.
The following priorities have been identified to organize our strategic-planning effort:
Academic Engagement and Student Success: Enhance access, learning and completion for Guilford College students.
Communication: Improve systems for internal and external communication using a variety of mediums.
Community Building: Foster a positive working and learning environment for our campus.
Financial Stability: Support long-term sustainability through sound financial processes and practices.
Partnerships: Cultivate partnerships to support attainment of our mission.
