Chapter Presidents

Volunteers and staff from the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement coordinate more than 100 events across the country in 40+ chapters. These gatherings allow you to connect with other alumni, families and friends and stay informed about current happenings at Davidson.

Chapter Presidents

The success of this chapter programming is directly attributed to the creativity and energy of our outstanding volunteers. The number of events a chapter holds is proportional to the number of alumni, families and friends in that chapter. Your chapter presidents would love to hear from you if you have ideas or would like to get involved!
