Friends Center Seeks to create a vibrant, generative, welcoming campus climate as it pertains to religious and spiritual life at Guilford College. Rooted in the Quaker tradition, Friends Center staff oversee multifaith collaboration, spiritual renewal, and Quaker studies.
C. Wess Daniels (Director)
Wess serves in the role that most would see as the “campus chaplain,” he reports to President Jane Fernandes and is a part of her Cabinet. He is very interested in both building a strong and authentic Quaker ethos at Guilford, while also growing and strengthen the religions and spiritual life of the campus as a whole through interfaith collaboration.
Wess is directly responsible for:
1. Cultivating a Quaker ethos on campus and helping nurture it in the wider community (off campus).
2. Offering spiritual/pastoral care to anyone on campus seeking it.
3. Working with and supervising Friends Center staff in their work leading the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program, on and off-campus Quaker Programming, and the Interfaith collaboration.
4. Maintain the strength of Friends Center through effective communication and fundraising
