Throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic, Furman has focused on the health and safety of the campus community while continuing to advance our students’ academic goals. Here, you’ll find communications and other updates, details on our plans, and the principles that guide us. Our COVID-19 Dashboard and Campus Operational Phases are updated weekly, or more frequently as needed. We will continue to monitor the evolving conditions and adjust as necessary.
