Students holding their awards

Leadership Awards

Every spring, the Shucker Center for Leadership Development and the Division of Student Life host the Student Leadership Awards and Recognition Night. This reception honors Furman’s finest and brightest student leaders and organizations for their leadership roles and service. We present awards in 17 different categories, and recipients are also recognized on a plaque in the Trone Student Center.


In accordance with Furman’s announcement that all university-sponsored events are cancelled through June 3, it is with deep regret that we must announce that the 2020 Leadership Awards and Recognition Night has been canceled. We have modified the banquet into an online format. Please view our virtual banquet webpage to view a student reflection and video presentations of each award category. We are excited to be able to celebrate our award winners in this format!

We are proud of the many accomplishments of each of our award winners. Though were are unable to celebrate together in person, please know that we recognize and uplift each of the contributions that you have made to this university and that you have much to be proud of.
