The “Davidson Arts Across the Curriculum” Enrichment Fund

This faculty fund supports creative endeavors that seek either to enrich the classroom experience by integrating the work of visiting artists or to enhance the student experience through travel to museums, theatre performances, literary talks, etc. 

Successful proposals will demonstrate an understanding of the essential role of the arts in curriculum development. Special consideration will be given to proposals that link the arts with newly established initiatives, programs, or collaborative spaces on campus, such as the Hurt Hub.
