David E. Shi Center for Sustainability

At the David E. Shi Center for Sustainability, we are more than a thought leader in higher education. Sure, we are constantly seeking ways to infuse sustainability into Furman’s curriculum and operations. But as global citizens with a vested interest in leading our society toward a more sustainable future, our programs and ideas extend beyond Furman’s campus to make a significant impact.

Our resolute focus—teaching the ethics of sustainability and graduating global citizens who act sustainably in their professional and personal lives—is at the core of all our activities. We provide a hub where educators, students and community leaders can work together, exploring the most complex issues of sustainability. By bringing these minds together, we have the ability to partner on community projects and generate solutions that can be modeled across the globe.
