Building a better Greenville
Greenville, Furman’s home, is a remarkable place, an increasingly beautiful “destination” city. Nevertheless, like much of South Carolina, there are two Greenvilles. One is relatively prosperous and well-educated, able to take advantage of the beauty and resources of the city and state; the other relatively poor, out of the social and economic mainstream of the community and South Carolina. In an op-ed for The Greenville News, Don Gordon, director of the Riley Institute at Furman and a Professor of Political Science, writes about how the community can work together to build a more inclusive Greenville.
