Guilford College President Kent Chabotar has received a contract extension through June 2013.
Chabotar took over as Guilford's leader in 2002 after 10 years as vice president and treasurer at Bowdoin College in Maine.

And it brought in a $10.8 million in gifts and pledges in the 2008-09 year, a campus fundraising record.
“Clearly, Kent has provided the vision and strong leadership that has resulted in the strengthening of Guilford’s position as a leading liberal arts college,” said Joseph M. Bryan, chair of the college's board of trustees. “He is a nationally recognized leader in higher education finance, which is a huge asset to the college in these uncertain economic times.
Although his latest contract is renewable beyond 2013, he has agreed to a five-year teaching contract in political science following his tenure as president. He has taught public policy and administration classes during five spring semesters since his arrival.
