The fall semester will begin an academic year like none before at Davidson College. We have been working to make sure we are ready to return to campus with safety as our foundational priority. 

Design teams made up of students, faculty and staff, have  500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.


We have designed new ways of going about each day, whether serving meals, deeply cleaning residence halls or sitting farther apart in class—all aided by a strong medical staff and the guidance of trustees with relevant epidemiological and medical expertise.

We are establishing protocols for COVID-19 testing, quarantine and isolation. We are working with Charlotte’s largest medical center to provide a full-time public health nurse and exploring additional staffing needs. 

Information will be added to these pages as decisions and announcements are made throughout the summer. 

Accountability To Each Other

With safety as our foundational priority, planning for the fall 2020 semester is guided by values of access and equity, community and connection, continuity, flexibility, quality, intentionality and transparency, and feasibility.
