Multicultural Affairs will facilitate the creation of an educational environment in which diversity is understood, embraced and celebrated. All students, faculty and staff benefit from a learning experience that fosters knowledge and acceptance of a multicultural and multiethnic world. As a result of the creation and maintenance of a University Diversity Plan, inter connected initiatives will be implemented whose overall purpose will be to create the diverse campus community as described in the University mission statement. Incorporated within the University plan will be initiatives which support the holistic model of college student development with respect to diversity.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs strives to improve the quality of life at Furman by implementing comprehensive educational and cultural services that promote multicultural awareness and respect for diversity.
