Sustainable Living

Think Globally, Act Individually

Living sustainably entails taking the holistic view of our actions and their consequences. A commitment to sustainability promotes the well-being of people and campuses over the long term.  Furman has made sustainability a priority for decades and has become widely recognized as a national leader in these endeavors. We have pioneered sustainable practices and education in a campus environment, as well as guided our community toward a more sustainable future. By integrating sustainability into everything we do, we believe that we are developing global citizens with the knowledge and tools to live more sustainable lifestyles. We invite you to be a part of the university’s sustainability movement! We have developed a Green Living Guide to provide students with some practical tips for experimenting and pursuing a more sustainable lifestyle while here on campus, and ideally beyond Furman’s gates!
