Davidson College

The Davidson College Advising Corps launched in 2014-2015 with nine advisers serving in nine high schools. Since its inception, the program has expanded rapidly and now places 18 advisers in 19 high schools.

Davidson’s college advisers work to increase the number of low-income, first-generation college and underrepresented high school students in rural North Carolina who enter and complete higher education. To deliver on this mission, Davidson CAC recruits and places well-trained, recent college graduates as full-time, near peer college advisers in underserved schools and communities to provide the support that students need to navigate the complex processes of college admissions, securing financial aid, and enrolling in schools that serve them well.
