Student Organizations

Furman has more than 150 social, recreational, religious, professional, honorary, and special interest student organizations. All organizations are open to all Furman students.

Student Diversity Council

The Student Diversity Council (SDC), is the umbrella organization for diversity-focused organizations on Furman’s campus. SDC defines a diversity group as any student organization that strives to affirm the diversity of the campus community in its many forms by embracing a broad definition of culture to include, but not limited to, world views formed by race, ethnicity, gender, national origin, abilities, sexual orientation and religion.

The council encourages and promotes awareness of cultural diversity among both the Furman University and Greenville communities, while aiming to expand and share the responsibility of creating and sustaining diversity efforts to all major campus organizations. This is accomplished through mutual support, communication, and co-sponsorship among these organizations.
