The Shucker Center for Leadership Development engages members of the Furman community in creating and sustaining a cohesive culture of lifelong leadership development, training and education. 

Named in honor of Dr. Harry B. Shucker, Furman's former Vice President for Student Life, the center empowers students to become leaders by facilitating opportunities for intentional learning, self-reflection, and skill development. We believe in developing authentic, visionary, goal-driven, action-oriented and resilient student leaders who exhibit an awareness of self and others. Our programs include the Shucker Leadership Institute, the Furman Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), Furman Student Leadership Awards, StrengthsQuest programs and Team Building Services. ​
