Soy Un Lider brought hundreds of Latino high school students to Guilford Nov. 7 for a day of college information and advice. The conference covered financial aid, how to pick a college and advice on filling out applications.

In my personal experience, that small group has consisted of Guilfordians. They are students, staff, faculty and alumni from Guilford College who have a passion for changing the world.

Every day, students pass the core value flags that line the brick walkway to Founders Hall.  While the terms the flags carry may appear abstract to some, the Multicultural Education Department is here to weave these values into the community. Nestled within the Academic Affairs wing in King Hall, this department stands as a guardian of social equality and justice here on campus.

MED’s mission is to support the educational, spiritual, cultural, physical and emotional development of students of color and LGBTQIA students in order to promote their retention and graduation, according to their page on the Guilford website.
