Social Responsibility Legacy and Action
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.
