Embracing Diversity

Guilford College is a diverse and accepting community of people from every corner of the country and world. As stated in our Core Values, we're welcoming of all cultures and beliefs. We also strive to create opportunities for people to share their views, ideas, and perspectives. Much of this is done through a variety of programs, initiatives, and events that raise diversity awareness both on and off campus.
