Francis Marion University is a public university located in Florence, South Carolina. It was founded in 1970 as a junior college and became a senior college in 1989. The university offers undergraduate degrees in 48 majors and graduates degrees in business, education, and nursing.
In recent years, the university implemented a plan to revitalize its campus. In 2016, FMU opened a new student center and renovated its main auditorium. Also in 2016, the university received a donation of $1 million from an anonymous donor to be used for scholarships and academic programs. The same year, the Board of Trustees awarded FMU President Dr. Fred Carter with $30,000 in bonuses because he was named one of six finalists for South Carolina’s superintendent of education position (a position which ultimately went to Molly Spearman).
