Furman University is a community of learning enriched by the wide variety of experiences and perspectives of its students. Our student body represents 45 states, 29 countries and many different cultural, religious, sexual, gendered and intellectual backgrounds.
However, we look beyond mere numbers when speaking about meaningful diversity and equality, as evidenced in the university’s diversity vision. Our broad and inclusive definition of diversity encourages civil discourse and bold intellectual inquiry and discovery. At Furman, you’ll meet students who share the same passions but approach things from different angles. That’s one of the advantages of attending one of the nation’s premier liberal arts colleges. Whether you’re studying biology or computer science, literature or politics, your classmates will always expose you to new ideas and possibilities.
