If you are concerned about a classmate or need help for yourself, Furman provides a variety of resources to help foster a safe learning environment. We go above and beyond to ensure that each of our students is a respectful member of our community.
Helping Students in Distress
The Student Intervention Team (SIT) is a group of administrators and staff who work closely with students who are struggling within the academic or social environment at Furman. The team works to coordinate university resources to assist students who are at risk academically, or who exhibit maladaptive behavior or signs of emotional distress.
Alcohol & Drug Education
We take a proactive, comprehensive approach to meeting students' health and wellness needs by addressing the dangers of alcohol and drug use. Our mission is to prevent and reduce underage drinking, high-risk drinking, illegal drug use, and the related social harm for students.
Title IX: Sexual Misconduct Policies
We are committed to educating students to become responsible citizens and leaders in the human community. Our university does not tolerate nor condone sexual violence.
