Furman University seeks to help our students develop a lifelong love of learning and to educate our students holistically in body, mind, and spirit through self-discovery. In so doing, Furman cultivates a nurturing student-centered environment that advances the virtues of self-reliance, independence and responsibility. Acknowledging that parents play a vital role in student education, the university is
committed to inform, educate and engage parents throughout their student’s academic career at Furman and to help them become appropriate partners in the education process.
We will inform parents of important deadlines and significant news about Furman, as appropriate. We will educate parents about generic issues that impact college students and provide parents with strategies to help their student(s) develop independence and achieve success. We will engage parents in the life of the University by communicating current and upcoming campus events.
