College Initiatives

Academic Neighborhood

Beginning in 2013 with a comprehensive construction/renovation plan for six academic buildings, and continuing with new opportunities for curricular expansion, Davidson is embarking on a 10-year plan to remake the model of liberal arts education. Learn more about the Academic Neighborhood.

Innovation & Entrepreneurship

A new campus-wide collaborative project, the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative is designed to inspire, connect and enable a dynamic community of entrepreneurs.


DavidsonX is a partnership with edX, a non-profit enterprise founded by Harvard and MIT, to produce a series of MOOCs over the next several years. Davidson is one of the first liberal arts colleges to collaborate with edX on the Consortium platform.

Davidson Next

Davidson Next is a collaboration between Davidson College, edX, a non-profit enterprise founded by Harvard and MIT, and College Board to produce a series of online instructional modules for Advanced Placement (AP) courses in calculus, macroeconomics, and physics.

Davidson Impact Fellows

Building on a strong commitment to civic engagement, the college has launched the Davidson Impact Fellows (DIF) program. This post-graduate fellowship initiative enables recent Davidson graduates to work with organizations that address critical social issues such as health, education, and the environment. Through this work, DIF Fellows will create and implement solutions to some of the most urgent problems our society now confronts, positively affecting their communities as they learn and develop into effective leaders.

Education Scholars

Education Scholars is a "Transition to Impact" summer program for Davidson students interested in driving change at every level of our education system. This program places eight students in immersive, project-based summer internships with local partners in and around the school system in Charlotte.
