“Davidson College understands that cultivating a broadly diverse community is crucial to our educational mission and to our foundational commitment to leadership and service. We seek out applications from talented faculty, staff and students from different cultures, ethnicities, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, ages, national origins, socio-economic backgrounds, and physical abilities. Our policies do not discriminate based on race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. We welcome and strive to foster mutual respect among all members of our community. We explicitly assert our commitment to our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) faculty, staff, students, and alumni and to their families.
