At Davidson, she created a Commission on Race and Slavery to explore the college’s past and took several important steps to act on the findings. She aslo developed the vision for and led a $555 million campaign, and revised campus planning to align the realities of Davidson’s facilities and infrastructure with its educational aspirations. The changes included the construction of a new transdisciplinary Academic Center, a student resource center, and the creation of a Hub for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The National Trust will mark its 75th anniversary next year.
