Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion


Diversity Includes All Of Us — All the Time

Born out of a 2016 call to action by students, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) was established to provide campus-wide leadership for diversifying the student body, faculty, staff and curriculum and programming to create an inclusive campus environment for all. The DEI Office is charged and committed to building and shaping a diverse and inclusive environment. The Office is home to centers, programs and initiatives that educate, engage and empower the Guilford College community through advancing inclusive excellence, partnerships and collaborations that contribute to attaining the College’s diversity, equity and inclusion goals. 


Mission

Promote inclusive excellence by educating, advocating, engaging and empowering the Guilford College  community by cultivating partnerships and resources to create and sustain an environment that is inclusive, equitable and diverse.

Vision

Make Guilford College a premier institution that ensures the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion are embedded in the framework of everything we do and celebrated throughout the campus community.


Intercultural Engagement Center

We educate and celebrate diversity and multiculturalism with an inclusive approach that also seeks to build relationships on campus and within the Greensboro community.

Bonner Center for Community Service and Learning

We bring the campus and community together and provide students with an opportunity to understand and articulate ways in which they can give back.

Wiser Justice Program

We bring Guilford College liberal arts courses to incarcerated women and men in three correctional facilities in North Carolina. Guilford is the only college in the country that offers the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Associate Exam to incarcerated individuals.


Title IX and Equal Opportunity


Title IX is part of a 1972 Federal Education Law – it prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded program or activity. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination. Guilford College is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, including based upon sex.
