The Shucker Leadership Institute is a two-year program designed to help students explore their passions, strengths, and values, experience personal, professional, and team-based contexts for leadership development, and engage with the community. During the first year, our new fellows focus on exploring leadership on the individual and group levels. 

During their second year, sophomore fellows put this knowledge into action as they learn about leadership on the societal level and then culminate their year with a Leadership Challenge Project, or LCP. Through this project, sophomores will seek to engage and make an impact at Furman and beyond. In keeping with the Furman Advantage, the Shucker Leadership Institute strives to give our fellows high-impact experiences and opportunities to engage with the greater Greenville community
