Two Riley Institute programs expand
Thanks to a $100,000 grant from Duke Energy, two leadership programs of the Riley Institute at Furman will soon be expanded. The grant was prompted by the tragic church shootings in Charleston, which led to discussions across the state with stakeholders by Duke’s leaders about how the company could best make an impact. The grant will support an expansion of the Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative and pilot the Emerging Diversity Leaders program, a nine-month, diversity-focused service leadership experience for rising high school seniors.
