Biographical / Historical

The Office of College Relations is charged with advancing a true picture of Davidson College to those outside the college community and serving as a communications link between the college and the world abroad. College Relations is also charged with fostering better communication and sense of community within the college itself. The office accomplishes these goals through a comprehensive plan of media relations and coordination of all of the college publications including the publication of internal newsletters such as the "Campus Chronicle" and external sources such as the Davidson Journal. In 1998, with the renaming of Institutional Advancement as College Relations, the former College Relations became College Communications.
