Our Programs Diversity and Inclusion Furman University


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. Our programs play a major role in that, encouraging civil discourse and connecting individuals who share a variety of cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
