Davidson College is joining colleges across the country to address the need for social distancing with online learning. The following announcement came from Davidson President Carol Quillen on March 14.


Today on campus, students are packing their rooms, professors are working with library and instructional design experts to move their courses to remote instruction, and our student life team is supporting community members, especially students, who have specific challenges or needs. Thank you all for coming together in support of our mission and one another.

In the broader community and on campus, people are adjusting to a radically different context. As we all focus more on COVID-19 and slowing its spread, each of us will pay more attention to our health and to abiding by our shared obligations. I’m proud and grateful to be a part of Davidson. You have turned understandable fear into constructive action, and your concern for one another is evident at every moment.

College leadership is working to address questions as they come in and is posting responses.

SGA (Student Government Association – ed.) has worked generously and quickly to address specific needs like transportation and storage. All students who can leave campus are doing that. Our amazing seniors have demonstrated leadership and understanding, and I know we will celebrate their accomplishments at some point in the future.
