About Davis & Elkins College

Davis & Elkins College is a Presbyterian-related liberal arts college established in 1904 by Senators Henry Gassaway Davis and Stephen Benton Elkins. Nestled in the mountains of Elkins, West Virginia, the College was established with land and funding by the Senators, donations from the citizens of Randolph County, and the Presbyteries of Lexington and Winchester, Virginia. Our campus boasts multiple historic properties that serve as learning centers, offices, and community gathering places. 

In the pursuit of our mission statement, to prepare and inspire students for success and for thoughtful engagement in the world, we offer over 30 majors to approximately 750 residential and commuter students. We value the richness of place, the beauty of the natural world, and the importance of other countries, cultures and regions. We particularly strive to help our students find that which brings them purpose in life, where passion and career intersect for the good of all. D&E challenges students to participate in a vibrant and diverse campus while cultivating the intellectual, creative, ethical, physical and leadership skills the real world requires. The College affirms as special values: human dignity, social responsibility, participatory governance, and the unity of the intellectual, social, and spiritual dimensions of life. 

The Morrison-Novakovic Center for Faith and Public Policy was dedicated this spring as a residential facility for students with “Big Ideas”. This new program seeks to foster discussion and engagement concerning the role of faith, public policy, ethics and sustainability in our increasingly interdependent world. The Center will host annual conferences, provide a residential-theme house and offer service to the campus and community through faith-based engagement with the world. 

As the recipient of both the Seed Grant and the Investment Grant through the PCUSA 1001 New Worshipping Communities program, D&E is focused on spiritual and leadership development of our campus community, and in particular, the student leaders of this ministry.

Our 15th president, Rev. Chris Wood, was inaugurated in March 2017, and is leading the College into an exciting future. As a small institution of higher education, we are particularly grateful for our debt free status and are looking forward to the culmination of a $100 million endowment Secure the Future campaign in June 2018.
