New Designs on Sustainability
Originally constructed in 1885, the 2008 renovation of Archdale Hall fused LEED certification with historic preservation. Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council for its high-efficiency electricity, low-water use and recycling systems, the building stands as a testament to Guilford's process and promotion of stewardship.
Keeping it Green
Incorporating two of our Core Values — stewardship and justice — a new hiking trail combines sustainable building methods with Guilford's Underground Railroad Project.
Innovations in the Field
New at Guilford for Spring 2017, Sustainable Food Systems blends hands-on work at the Guilford farm with studies of preservation and fermentation.
In a Sierra Magazine poll of 202 colleges and universities, Guilford ranked seventh for its green initiatives in the food sustainability category. Notable actions include operating a campus farm, waste composting and support of local agriculture.
