History of the Davidson Group
The Davidson Group was created by Nashville Agenda's Steering Committee for the purpose of promoting positive race relations in the city of Nashville. The core concept driving the Davidson Group is a belief that familiarity breeds understanding and respect. Participants in the Davidson Group program are paired by ethnic and cultural differences, providing the participants an opportunity to build informal relationships with individuals from different backgrounds.
In August 2008, the Davidson Group was moved to Lipscomb University's Institute for Law, Justice & Society (LJS). Following in March 2012, the program was relocated to Lipscomb University's Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership. Part of the Institute's mission is to engage emerging and current leaders in programs to create thriving communities, which dirrectly correlates to the mission of the Davidson Group.
Lipscomb's Nelson and Sue Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership will work in consultation with the Davidson Group Advisory Committee to execute the daily operations of the Davidson Group.
