What About Ethnic & Cultural Diversity?
The college is dedicated to intellectual and cultural growth in the broadest sense. Davidson prides itself on a student body made up of the most talented young people, chosen not only for their academic promise, but also for their character. The Center for Diversity & Inclusion assists students from minority groups through associations and organizations, the ambassadors program, and the STRIDE support program that helps new students of color adjust to college life. Additionally, through the college’s Equity Advisers & Student Initiative for Academic Diversity (SIAD) program, students are assigned to assist job search committees throughout the hiring process to ensure an equitable search process, one that is designed to yield a diverse pool of qualified candidates.
