DACE Advisory Board

The DACE Advisory Board provides support and advice for the arts at Davidson College. Board meetings are held on campus twice a year with the director, VP of Academic Affairs, VP of College Relations, arts faculty, and arts fellows to strengthen collaboration within the Davidson arts community and encourage participation in the arts programs. Advisory Board members are selected through a nominations process and invited to join the board by President Carol Quillen. All Board members are enthusiastic advocates for the arts at Davidson. DACE sponsors annual grant programs, departmental programs, and various innovative and creative projects throughout campus.
