At Davidson, we celebrate learning about and practicing faith in ways that nurture the mind, body, and spirit.

Our religious and spiritual life is as diverse and vibrant as our student body.

With 15 student organizations and the support of the Chaplains' Office, we hope that Davidson will be a spiritual home for all. The Chaplains' Office serves the entire college community, supporting a wide range of opportunities for worship, interfaith dialogue, fellowship, social action, and service.
