From the Furman University International Student Association to the Hispanic Organization of Learning and Awareness, you'll find a number of multicultural programs and student organizations that support our diverse community. But these groups provide more than emotional support to encourage and strengthen a
healthy learning environment. They share their ideas and experiences with our entire community.
Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives in Student Life (DIISL) works with students to create a more welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community. To achieve this, we host student programs and trainings and advise student organizations across campus to ensure we're creating an environment where differences are embraced. Visit Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives in Student Life.
If you really want to connect with students who have a wide range of experiences and perspectives, join one of our multicultural student organizations. These organizations exist to encourage and promote awareness of cultural diversity among Furman students, faculty, and staff, as well as the Greenville community. Our organizations are open to all students, regardless of background. Join a student organization.
Every year, we help international students adjust to life in the United States through information sessions and extracurricular activities. Visit the Office of Study Away and International Education.
The Office of Admission provides many resources for prospective students:
- Mosaic is a student organization that assists in the recruitment of multicultural prospective students.
- Multicultural Student Evening is a time to meet faculty, staff, and alumni who support diversity and inclusion initiatives, as well as Mosaic members. After dinner, students have the opportunity to stay overnight on campus with a Mosaic host, while parents enjoy a Paladin “Knight Cap” in beautiful downtown Greenville. The registration link for MSE is included in the registration form for Accepted Students Day. Register now.
- The Multicultural Achievement Program (M.A.P.), occurring in the winter of every year, gives high school juniors an idea of the daily life of a Furman student in a relaxed and informative setting. Participants enjoy a tour of campus, sit in on a mock class, and have conversations with current multicultural students.
- Furman Diversity Connection, occurring before one of our Accepted Student Days, offers accepted multicultural students and their families a information session on applying, financial aid counseling, and events with current multicultural students.
