A Message from the Chair of the Board of Trustees


The following message was shared with the College community at 1:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021:

We are pleased to announce that Jim Hood, Charles A. Dana Professor of English, has agreed to serve as Guilford College’s president on an interim basis. Carol Moore has decided to conclude her time with the College, originally planned for June. While Jim’s role begins today, Carol will be available to consult with us for 30 days.
 
Jim Hood is known to the entire Guilford community for his decades-long commitment to the College, the community, and to his areas of scholarship. Jim is a 1979 graduate of Guilford, who holds a master's degree from Yale University, and a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He will be a wonderful steward through these next months as our search for the next president is under way.
 
We will be communicating to our community again after our regular February trustee meeting, planned for this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26-27.  
 
Thank you,
Edward C. Winslow
Chair, Board of Trustees
