Furman Inclusive Communities

Furman has more than 150 social, recreational, religious, professional, honorary, and special interest student organizations. All organizations are open to all Furman students.

Student Diversity Council

The Student Diversity Council (SDC), is the umbrella organization for diversity-focused organizations on Furman’s campus. SDC defines a diversity group as any student organization that strives to affirm the diversity of the campus community in its many forms by embracing a broad definition of culture to include, but not limited to, world views formed by race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, abilities, sexual orientation and religion.

The council encourages and promotes awareness of cultural diversity among both the Furman University and Greenville community, while aiming to expand and share the responsibility of creating and sustaining diversity efforts to all major campus organizations. This is accomplished through mutual support, communication, and co-sponsorship among these organizations.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

Fraternity and Sorority Life at Furman is a vibrant and thriving community, consisting of six national fraternities and seven national sororities. Chapters are representative of the Interfraternity Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Panhellenic Council. Fraternities and sororities are open to all members of the Furman student community, and promote an inclusive recruitment program so that any student who is interested can gain the benefits of being a member of the Greek community. Each chapter provides academic and social support to its members, helping students make friends, develop leadership skills, and serve their local community.
