Webinar about The Furman Advantage

The university launched The Furman Advantage in the fall of 2016.

Furman University President Elizabeth Davis and Gallup Senior Advisor Brandon Busteed discuss the ongoing efforts of The Furman Advantage, the university’s signature approach to education, in a webcast that debuts today.

The webinar, “The Furman Advantage: How One University Provides Lifelong Value to Students,” is available at https://bit.ly/2Qu6gPh.

“The discussion centers around our work to create an integrated four-year pathway for our students that prepares them for successful and meaningful lives,” Davis said. “It is being shared on Gallup’s website and with hundreds of higher education leaders and media across the country.”

Furman is partnering with global analytics firm Gallup to study the impact of the university’s undergraduate experience and measure the effectiveness of The Furman Advantage, which seeks to provide every student with a distinctive and highly individualized learning experience.
