Multicultural Life

Students closely connect to their own cultural and ethnic backgrounds, as well as to the backgrounds of the students around them, through a vast array of cultural clubs, organizations, and leadership opportunities. Through programmatic resources and powerful student organizations, Davidson promotes a safe, open environment for all of its students regardless of race, gender, disability, or sexual orientation.

Davidson's commitment to diversity and inclusivity is grounded in our college's Statement of Purpose and extends to the entire Davidson community. The college seeks to foster mutual respect and understanding among and for all people of different cultures, ethnicities, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, ages, national origins, socio-economic backgrounds, and physical abilities.

We strive to enrich our community by attracting, supporting, and retaining students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds and perspectives who bring a variety of talents, passions, and world views.

We believe Davidson should be a place where those who live, work, and study see difference as an opportunity and stimulus to learn about themselves, each other, and the larger world.

We are committed to assisting students in developing humane instincts and disciplined and creative minds for lives of leadership and service.

We are intentional about deepening our knowledge, awareness, and understanding of all people, and we seek to develop skills to interact constructively across our differences.

We are compelled to act to make our community and the world more socially just because we recognize the dignity and worth of every person.
