A home away from home.

Through the CDI and other groups on campus, Davidson offers many opportunities for peers to support one another.

Students Together Reaching for Individual Development and Education STRIDE

STRIDE is a program that provides direct support to first-year and transfer students of color so that they can not only successfully complete their first academic year of college but ultimately thrive towards successful graduation from Davidson College. Students may participate in STRIDE through either or both of their components: the Pre-Orientation Experience and the Academic Year Peer Leadership Experience

(YANASH) You Are Not A Stranger Here

YANASH is a confidential student group created by students for any and every Davidson College student to seek queer community without the pressures and fears of coming out. The organization fosters an inclusive environment for attendees to seek information about queer identities, gender identities and sexualities in group and peer support networks. Contact us for more information!

Queer Mentorship Program

The Queer Mentorship Program pairs incoming first-year and transfer students with queer sophomore, junior or senior Davidson College students. The program recognizes that the transition to college is a hard time, especially so for queer and/or questioning first-year students. The organization hopes that a mentor can help assist and guide students through their acclimation to Davidson College and create a more welcoming community at Davidson College.

Undocumented Student Community Dinners

Several times per semester, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and the Dean of Students Office host dinners for undocumented students. The goal of these events is to facilitate community building among undocumented students and to connect them to campus and local resources. Contact us for more information!

Student Organizations

Through the Student Activities Office, Davidson has more than 200 student organizations on campus. Students have created a range of student organizations that address culture, diversity, gender and sexuality topics.
