Summer 2020 High Impact Learning Experiences
We continue to adjust to the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will transition Davidson’s summer, high-impact learning experiences to remote formats, wherever possible. We have canceled a few of those programs in which the intent of the experience could not be met through virtual engagement.
These shifts are driven by our primary considerations for the health and well being of our participants and communities. Davidson will continue to monitor external summer opportunities and travel restrictions, and we will continue to provide guidance as we progress. Please contact the individual program for questions about the transition and individual implications.
Students pursuing summer experiences through third parties or directly with outside organizations must exercise caution as organizations respond to the pandemic. We strongly discourage students from—and Davidson funds will not be used to support—traveling in contradiction to federal, state and local guidelines regarding health and safety.
