Proposals often include institutional descriptions, general information, and statistics on college programs and departments. Much of this information is now available on the Davidson College website on department or program home pages, as well as the public relations office site. Useful information may also be found at Distinctly Davidson and Fast Facts. Information regarding the criteria for selecting faculty may be found in text which has been excerpted from Davidson's Statement of Purpose. We use the following text when composing a grant proposal:

"... Davidson has chosen to be a liberal arts college, to maintain itself as a residential community of scholars, to emphasize the teaching responsibility of all professors, and to ensure the opportunity for personal relationships between students and teachers. Further, Davidson believes it is vital that all students in every class know and study under mature and scholarly teachers who are able and eager to provide for each of them stimulation, instruction, and guidance. ... In the selection of faculty, the College seeks men and women who respect the purpose of the College, who are outstanding intellectually, who have the best training available in their fields of study, and whose interest in students and teaching is unfeigned and profound. ..."
