Shucker Center for Leadership Development

The Shucker Center for Leadership Development engages members of the Furman community in creating and sustaining a cohesive culture of lifelong leadership development, training, and education.

Named in honor of Dr. Harry B. Shucker, Furman’s former Vice President for Student Life, the center¬†empowers students to become leaders by facilitating opportunities for intentional learning, self-reflection, and skill development. We believe in developing authentic, visionary, goal-driven, action-oriented and resilient student leaders who exhibit an awareness of self and others. Our programs include the Shucker Leadership Institute,¬†the Furman Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), Furman Student Leadership Awards, Strengths Development Strategies programs and Team Building Services for the Furman community.
