In addition to the Charter and Bylaws, organization chart, Constitution of the Faculty of Furman University, Faculty Handbook, and University planning and policies and procedures Manuals, the annual catalogues of the University serve as official sources for information about the organization and functioning of the University.
The Furman University Catalogue; the Furman University Graduate Studies in Education Catalogue, the Furman University Summer Session Catalogue, and the Furman University Continuing Education Catalogue are the official catalogues of the University.
1. The Furman University Bulletin, Catalogue Issue, is the most comprehensive source of information about the University, its educational offerings, its staff, and its organization. It is edited by a designated member of the staff under the guidance of an administrative committee and the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean with input from the vice presidents, department chairs, and directors of individual programs. The Marketing and University Relations Office is responsible for final preparation of the manuscript, design, selection of photographs, and printing. The Marketing and University Relations Office manages the Catalogue Printing Budget.
2. Course listings in the Furman University catalogue will be periodically reviewed by the individual departments, the Academic Policies Committee, and the Associate Dean and University Registrar. Courses that have not been offered within a five-year period from the time of review will be removed from the catalogue. If a department wishes to reinstate a removed course within ten (10) years of the date of its removal, it may do so by notifying the Curriculum Committee, the Associate Dean and University Registrar, and the Editor of the Catalogue of its intention to schedule the course in the following academic year. No removed course may be scheduled prior to such notification or without the courses being listed in the catalogue of the academic year in which it will be offered. If a department wishes to reinstate a removed course beyond the ten-year limit, the course must be submitted to the Curriculum Committee as a new course. The Associate Dean and University Registrar will have the responsibility of informing the Editor of the Catalogue and the appropriate department chairs whenever courses are to be removed from the catalogue.
