covid-19 chaplains' office update

due to covid-19, the chaplains’ office is offering all pastoral care and programming virtually. we welcome students of all religious backgrounds and philosophical worldviews to schedule an appointment with a chaplain to talk about any topic, including, but not limited to, religious/spiritual questions, life transitions, sexuality/sexual orientation, and ideas for programming. as chaplains from the buddhist, catholic, jewish, and presbyterian traditions, we respect each student’s personal journey and beliefs, providing a space that is confidential, supportive, and free of judgment.

to schedule an appointment, please email sally fredricks at or contact any of the chaplains directly.

at davidson, we celebrate learning about and practicing faith in ways that nurture the mind, body, and spirit.

our religious and spiritual life is as diverse and vibrant as our student body.

with 15 student organizations and the support of the chaplains' office, we hope that davidson will be a spiritual home for all. the chaplains' office serves the entire college community, supporting a wide range of opportunities for worship, interfaith dialogue, fellowship, social action, and service.
