Guilford College - and this search committee - believe strongly that having a faculty representative of people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives is central to the mandate we have to prepare our students for the society in which they will live and the vocations they will pursue.  The faculty is convinced that having a diverse faculty reflects the College's stated values of guaranteeing and protecting the dignity of each individual, while pursuing the common goals of our larger society. We define diversity broadly to include group differences (based on age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, ethnicity, religion and national origin) as well as individual differences, including career and life experiences, socioeconomic background, geographic roots, and other variables.  Guilford College is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
