Resources for Further Support



About Friends Center

Friends Center began in 1984 with the support of President William R. Rogers. The founding director of the center was Judith Weller-Harvey, followed by Max Carter, and now Wess Daniels. Since then Friends Center has grown in staff and in mission through the generous support of Friends everywhere.

Friends Center is a collaborative project between the Religious Society of Friends and Guilford College. Friends Center is responsible for three key aspects of the college’s mission.

  1. Nurture Quaker life and renewal on campus through programming, the Quaker studies minor, and the Quaker leadership program.
  2. Build and sustain interfaith cooperation and spirituality on Guilford’s campus.
  3. Build bridges and relationships with the Global Quaker community, not only to draw students to the college but to act as a resource for the Religious Society of Friends.

Location

Eva Campbell

Friends Center is happily located in the beautiful and newly renovated Eva Campbell house. Eva Campbell was born on April 5, 1895 and would later become a Professor of Biology at Guilford College, serving on the faculty from 1924-1961.

She pursued graduate work at Ohio State University, completing her Ph.D. in 1931, and mentored generations of Guilfordians who went on to successfully complete medical school.

Fifteen years after her retirement, she wrote ” My teaching and my students during my years at Guilford College have been the deepest satisfaction of my life. I am very proud of the many men and women whom I have taught…”

Look for the parking lot at the corner of George White Rd and Friendly Ave.

There is a sign that says “Friends Center and Quaker Leadership Scholars Program.”

There is parking right outside our office door.
