Sara Furr, MEd

The Center for Intercultural Programs (CIP) provides transformative curricular and co-curricular educational experiences that encourage students, faculty and staff to think broadly and critically about cultural identity and adopt strategies to confront systems that do not recognize the dignity of the individual. The Center also works with strategic campus partners to support and advocate for substantive and culturally relevant student engagement and leadership development.

Sara Furr has served as the director of the Center for Intercultural Programs since November 2013. In this role, she is responsible for creating and facilitating diversity and social justice education initiatives for students, faculty, staff, and community partners. Prior to becoming the director, Sara served as the assistant director of Multicultural Student Success at DePaul. Prior to her work at DePaul University, Sara served as the director of Intercultural Development at Mount St. Mary's University. Additional experiences include work at Fordham University in New York City and Loyola College in Maryland.

Sara received her bachelor's degree in public policy from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and masters of education in higher education and student affairs from the University of South Carolina. She is also currently working on her PhD in Higher Education at Loyola University Chicago.
