The college announced Saturday that Carroll had accepted appointment as Distinguished Strategic Executive in Residence. The role will allow Carroll to work toward solving “issues that will be fundamental to the future of the college,” according to President Lawrence D. Czarda.
The announcement¬†was made as Carroll was awarded the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award as part of the college’s Alumni Weekend activities. Greensboro College is currently celebrating its 175th anniversary. The school was chartered in 1838.
President Czarda also announced that the college had raised more than $16 million in three years as part of its Pride in the Future mini-capital campaign.
The gifts include unrestricted and restricted cash gifts, gifts to the endowment, estate gifts, gifts of real and personal property, and in-kind gifts, according to a press release.
“The college, which had been on sanction with its accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, since late 2010 because of its financial problems, was restored to full accreditation four months ago,” the release stated. “Its total short-term debt has been reduced to zero. And even with very conservative enrollment outlooks, the college has adopted what it believes to be a sustainable and balanced three-year budget model.”
