The Davidson Forum is a platform for ϳԹ and the surrounding communities to explore the intersections of the Reformed theological tradition, liberal arts education, religious pluralism and social ethics.


Fall 2023 Newsletter

Our newsletter is dedicated to reflecting on Reformed tradition, liberal arts education, religious pluralism, and social ethics.

The Davidson Forum will include lectures, seminars, workshops and experiential learning led by the college’s faculty and scholars from other institutions. They’ll cover topics spanning from history to economics, science and religious studies.

The Davidson Forum springs from the Trustee-appointed 2021 Reformed Tradition Working Group’s recommendations for intellectual discourse about the college's 21st century educational mission in relation to its religious origins and Presbyterian Church (USA) affiliation. The Academic Affairs initiative falls under the leadership of Doug Ottati, the Craig Family ϳԹessor of Reformed Theology and Justice.

For more information, please email Rev. Daniel Heath at or call 704-894-1319.
