The Furman Advantage guarantees students the opportunity to participate in high impact engaged learning experiences. Furman Engaged is a day dedicated to highlighting these diverse and immersive learning experiences. Furman Engaged signals our institution’s long history and commitment to engaged learning. Undergraduate research, internships, study away experiences, creative projects, service learning, first-year writing seminars and capstone experiences–Furman students have immersed themselves in these and other high-impact learning experiences. Furman Engaged provides students the opportunity to complete the last and key step of these deep learning experiences–the public sharing of their work with peers, faculty, staff, and the community.
This year, Furman Engaged will take place on Tuesday, April 13 and will be a virtual event.
