Self-Exploration & Growth


Shucker Center for Leadership Development

The Shucker Leadership Institute is moving online to continue its two-year leadership development program. The Center is also exploring opportunities and partnerships to expand beyond the SLI program to provide leadership development to student organizations and more.

Opportunities for Reflection and Self-Exploration

Furman will continue to provide students the opportunities to identify their strengths, interests and passions.  Throughout the spring, the offices and centers below will offer virtual one-on-one and small group sessions aimed to create these opportunities for self-reflection and learning.

Spiritual Life Activities

The Office of Spiritual Life engages the heart and spirit of students, faculty, and staff by embodying a value for sacred mystery, nurturing mature spiritual formation and the pursuit of ultimate meaning and purpose, developing moral courage and justice, fostering multifaith education and relationship, and supporting a rich diversity of spiritual communities. Through both reimagined virtual and personal experiences programming will include:
