Read Q&A with President Elizabeth Davis
In a wide-ranging interview with Black Box Magazine, Furman President Elizabeth Davis talked about everything from growing up in New Orleans and playing in a band with Wynton Marsalis to what it means to be Furman’s first female president. She also discussed her views on the cost and value of education as well as her vision for Furman and its surrounding community.
“None of the real challenges that our country faces can be solved in a uni-dimensional way,” Davis told Jordana Megonigal, the magazine’s publisher, “so the real leaders and the real strategic thinkers in the country are going to have to know how to approach issues from multiple points of view, or at least know how to bring the right kinds of teams together to think through providing solutions. That’s what I think the beauty of a liberal arts college is.”
