Interfaith

Interfaith learning at Davidson enables students, staff, and faculty to cultivate connections to particular faith traditions and to learn about the beliefs and practices of others. Such learning is an important part of a liberal arts education in our pluralistic world. These experiences equip students with the skills and knowledge to practice informed, judicious interfaith leadership on campus and beyond.

Interfaith Dinner Club

The Interfaith Dinner Club is an opportunity for first-year and sophomore students to practice interfaith dialogue with a small community over the course of a semester. Students explore themes of identity, leadership, and community together over meals. Students from all faith-based and secular traditions are encouraged to apply. This program is offered annually in the fall semester.

Better Together Student Group

Through Better Together, students from all faiths and philosophical traditions join together to learn from each other through festivals, lectures and visits to houses of worship. We also engage in meaningful dialogue across traditions, participate in community service, and promote spiritual and religious diversity on campus in a spirit of mutual understanding and respect.
