Harry Shucker Furman University

The Shucker Leadership Institute at Furman is named in honor of Dr. Harry B. Shucker, who spent 40 years on staff at Furman, 22 of those as vice president for student services.

These programs reflect Shucker's belief that leadership is action, not just a position of power. "The best leaders are those who provide opportunities for others to develop their own potential through working toward a common goal that benefits the greater Furman and Greenville communities."

His servant leader approach involved providing the necessary resources to help students and professional colleagues attain their own successes and leadership positions in campus life and in the work place.

Each year, the Harry B. Shucker Outstanding Student Leader Award is presented to a senior student who exemplified a commitment to impacting others and effecting positive change at Furman.
