DavidsonLearns Introduces The Davidson Forum
Daniel Heath and Doug Ottati will join us to talk about the Davidson Forum, a new initiative encouraging Davidson College and the surrounding communities to explore the intersections of the Reformed theological tradition, liberal arts education, religious pluralism and social ethics.
