The Chidsey Center hosts a lecture series, conferences and special workshops for all students to participate and be exposed to leadership education and development.
The Chidsey Leadership Lecture Series features Davidson alumni and other inspiring leaders who have made exceptional contributions to their communities. Occurring once a semester, speakers are invited to give a lecture, dine with students beforehand, and meet with students during the day in a class, workshop, and/or informal setting. Speakers are selected for their unique experiences that can be applied to diverse student groups. To nominate a lecture series speaker to the series committee, email the Chidsey Center.
The Annual Women's Leadership Conference is an intergenerational exploration of leadership. The conference is designed and run entirely by a student planning committee with the Chidsey Center maintaining a strong relationship with conference leaders and providing support and advice as needed. This mission of the conference is to encourage relationships between students and community members by connecting them as conference participants. Registration is open to students, parents, alumni, and community members. For more information and to participate in the conference visit the conference website or email the conference committee.
