Davidson's $425-million comprehensive campaign focuses on the college's highest aspirations and aims to raise support for scholarships, enrichment of the academic and athletic experience and programs to help students lead and innovate in an evolving world. No institution is better positioned to reimagine the liberal arts tradition within this modern world than Davidson, which holds itself and its community to the highest standards of intellectual inquiry and humane action.
Davidson is undertaking a comprehensive construction/renovation plan for six academic buildings, and continuing with new opportunities for curricular expansion. The 10-year plan will restructure the main academic portion of campus to create learning spaces that foster new methods of interdisciplinary learning. The six buildings will be expanded, renovated or constructed over the next decade to create a "neighborhood" with flexible learning spaces and common areas.
Internships provide valuable and professional experiences for our students. Alumni, parents, families and friends of Davidson College are encouraged to support the Davidson Internship Challenge by connecting students to open internships, forming an internship specifically for a Davidson student, or by making a gift to fund an internship opportunity.
Davidson Impact Fellows gain hands-on experience with nonprofit organizations on critical social issues such as health, education and the environment. Fellows are supervised by high-level leaders and contribute to the efforts of the organizations in powerful and meaningful ways. The fellowship applicants complete a thorough screening process to ensure the best possible match for each open position.
The entrepreneurship initiative creates a community of entrepreneurs committed to finding innovative solutions to challenging problems. Davidson supports young alumni and students with resources and structure to launch sustainable ventures. With a collective ownership from stakeholders on and off campus, young entrepreneurs explore social innovation, immerse themselves in the Venture Lab and intern at start-up companies around the world.
