Time to Celebrate


Davidson to kick-off comprehensive campaign

The weekend of Nov.14-15 will be an exciting one for Davidson College, as alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the college gather to celebrate the public launch of the institution’s next comprehensive fundraising campaign. Throughout the two-day event, attendees will further familiarize themselves with the vision for Davidson’s future and learn more about what it will take to achieve the college’s highest aspirations.

“Already, the Davidson family has shown extraordinary support for this comprehensive effort,” said Davidson College President Carol Quillen. “From scholarship support and investment in capital projects to programming support and gifts for the arts and athletics, our alumni, parents and friends demonstrate every day their passion for Davidson and their commitment to the next chapter in its history. I feel privileged to lead the institution during such an exciting time.”

The public launch of the campaign will highlight one focus area of the three-part plan to realize the college’s vision.

Throughout the course of this effort, Davidson leaders also will be working with alumni, parents and friends to evaluate the college’s operational strategies. This work will involve taking a close look at opportunities to provide students with a more exceptional education and to evaluate the current budget process and business model.

The third component is the building of collaborative relationships, both within higher education and across industries. The results of these partnerships will bring new ideas, energy and resources to Davidson and will provide unique opportunities for students to exert disproportionate impact for good in the world.

Co-chairs for the campaign were announced recently: John McCartney ’74 of Chicago and Alison Mauzé ’84 of Mill Valley, Calif. McCartney and Mauzé will provide leadership throughout the effort in concert with the entire volunteer campaign committee. The complete leadership team will be announced soon.

Please plan to join us on Nov. 14-15. Look for additional information on the Davidson website.
