Multicultural programs and groups
From the Furman University International Student Association to the Hispanic Organization of Learning and Awareness, you'll find a number of multicultural programs and student organizations that support our diverse community. But these groups provide more than emotional support to encourage and strengthen a
healthy learning environment. They share their ideas and experiences with our entire community.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion leads the university's efforts to become a more welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community. To achieve this, we work departments and student organizations across campus to ensure we're creating an environment where differences are embraced. Visit the Office of Diversity and Inclusion
If you really want to connect with students who have a wide range of experiences and perspectives, join one of our multicultural student organizations. These organizations exist to encourage and promote awareness of cultural diversity among Furman students, faculty, and staff, as well as the Greenville community. Our organizations are open to all students, regardless of background. Join a student organization
Every year, we help international students adjust to life in the United States through information sessions and extracurricular activities. Visit the Office of Study Away and International Education.
The Office of Admission provides many resources for prospective students:
- The Mosaic group is a student organization that assists in the recruitment of multicultural prospective students.
- The Multicultural Achievement Program (M.A.P.), occurring in the winter of every year, gives high school juniors an idea of the daily life of a Furman student in a relaxed and informative setting. Participants enjoy a tour of campus, sit in on a mock class, and have conversations with current multicultural students.
- The Multicultural Student Evening, occurring after one of our Accepted Student Days, offers accepted multicultural students and their families the experience of community through panel discussions, dinner, and evening activities.
