We are looking for ideas that advance our mission and continue Davidson’s excellence in the context of a changing world. There are four focus areas for Year 1, while Davidson pilots the framework, hones the evaluating process, and increases community involvement and awareness. In subsequent years, focus areas may reflect a new set of challenges and/or opportunities. They are:

  • Enhancing the Student Experience,
  • Program & Process Improvements,
  • Future of the Liberal Arts, and
  • New Revenue.

CAMPAIGN BRIEF

Based on research and interviews with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees, four themes emerged. These will be the focus areas for Year 1, while Davidson pilots the framework, hones the evaluating process, and increases community involvement and awareness. In subsequent years, focus areas may reflect a new set of challenges and/or opportunities:

  • Enhancing the Student Experience
  • Future of the Liberal Arts
  • Program & Process Improvements
  • New Revenue

  • Ideas that fall within a focus area AND meet one or more of the following criteria should go through the framework:

  • Requires a new financial investment from the College
  • Includes teaching material or methods that deviate from standard curriculum or delivery
  • Requires a significant, long-term commitment from the institution (more than one year)
