Our charge as the International Affairs Subcommittee is to advise on matters pertaining to internationalization and global issues affecting the Furman community, including, but not limited to, policy development and revision, recruitment, multicultural training and education for faculty and staff. We collaborate with other entities on campus, such as the Rinker Center for Study Away & International Education and Center for Inclusive Communities, to supplement their work on behalf of campus internationalization, and identify opportunities to connect diversityrich and global experiences with existing or new courses which prepare students to live, work and contribute in a diverse globally connected world. We also aim to serve as a bridge to engage the Furman community with the broader Greenville International network.
