This month, the College began sharing information with faculty, staff, alumni and friends about the $60 million comprehensive Advancing Excellence campaign, for which $42.5 million has been raised in the quiet phase. The campaign will be announced in the media next week.
Funds raised through Advancing Excellence will help Guilford:
- Prepare Future Leaders
- Support Outstanding Educators
- Build Community
Members of the College community were mailed a booklet outlining the Advancing Excellence initiatives. A campaign website at http://excellence.guilford.edu also has information and updates.
In a letter that accompanied the campaign materials, President KENT CHABOTAR said, “As members of our faculty and staff, you are dedicated to our students and contribute to Guilford’s culture of selfless service to others. You are the role models that influence our students and graduates to serve as well.”
He added, “All of you are important campaign ambassadors to our alumni and friends. I hope that you will join me in sharing the good news about what our students and your colleagues are doing so that donors will see the wisdom of investing in the College and its mission.
“Guilford needs the support of everyone in our community to make Advancing Excellence a success. Please consider how you might help us meet our goals, through your influence and your personal generosity. We will have more campus conversation about ways to do this in spring of 2012.”
For questions about Advancing Excellence, contact the Office of Advancement at 316-2178.

MAX and JANE CARTER led a work/study group to the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel June 17-July 5. Sponsored by Friends United Meeting, the international Quaker organization that operates the Quaker schools in Ramallah, and organized by Friends Center at Guilford, the trip included RACHEL DIANA PHILLIPS ’66, AJ WILLEY ’11, TIM LEISMAN ’13, KELSEY WORTHY ’14, and STEPHANIE SELIGMAN ’14 plus others from around the country.
During the trip, the group did volunteer labor at the Ramallah Quaker schools, Friends meetinghouse, Friends International Center, and Friends Play Centre in the al-Amari refugee camp; volunteered at the Mar Elias School in Ibillin, Israel; traveled extensively in the region; and met with numerous political, religious, civil society, and peace & justice leaders in both Palestine and Israel.
A highlight was meeting with current Guilford students from Ramallah DIMA HANANIA ’12 and MICHAEL KHAYAT ’14, and DANA HAMDAN ’11 and YACOUB SA’AD, MOHAMMAD KHALAF, MAISA ZEEDANI, and RASHA ALI. Incoming student HANEEN AMRA ’15 participated with the group in many work projects and programs.
Contact was made with universities in both Israel and in the Occupied West Bank in preparation for a possible academic program in accordance with “special term” plans in SLRP II.
