The Office of Community Relations helps serve as a liaison between Furman University and the Greenville Community. The staff works to build partnerships with local, state and federal government officials, human service agencies, health organizations, schools, neighborhood organizations, corporations, the faith community, business associations, arts organizations and other entities striving to increase the quality of life for Furman and the entire community. We believe in the power of collaboration. We believe in diverse engaged learning opportunities for our students. We believe in the power of service learning. Furman University has a strong commitment to the community. Students, faculty and staff routinely perform diverse service efforts, clearly demonstrating a culture here that values giving back. In truth, it is as much about giving forward with the intent that it will make a difference in both the future of the people for this community as well as the world. We want to bring our resources to the table of community problem solving and asset building.
