Calling all innovative, unique and up-and-coming colleges

faculty promotions

When College Consensus put together a list of 50 “underrated” colleges in the U.S. that are doing great things, Furman came in at No. 13. According to the website, these schools are “doing something unique, something innovative, something meaningful, that deserves to be more widely recognized.”

College Consensus writes that “Furman has exhibited a powerful commitment to helping heal generations of racial and economic discrimination in South Carolina, making inclusion, diversity, and social uplift one of its primary objectives.” The university “has also made major strides with the Furman Advantage, an initiative begun in 2016 to make Furman one of the best colleges for experiential learning, using connections throughout South Carolina to improve students’ hands-on learning college experience.”
