The Shi Center is consistently recognized as a leader in sustainability research. Furman faculty and students have a long history of conducting research relevant to sustainability. Ongoing faculty research initiatives, such as the River Basins Research Initiative (RBRI), bring together interdisciplinary teams of students and faculty. Individual faculty members, some working with students, examine sustainability through their own disciplinary lenses.
The Shi Center supports all sustainability research on campus, but is most intimately involved in three sustainability research programs: the Faculty Sustainability Research Program, the Conservation Culture Research Initiative, spearheaded by Shi Center director Dr. Angela Halfacre, and the Food Systems and Farming Research Initiative.
