Duke Energy turns to Riley Institute
When company officials and employees at corporate giant Duke Energy sought a meaningful response to the tragic June 17 shootings at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, they directed their attention to the Riley Institute at Furman. Two institute programs, the Diversity Leaders Initiative and the Emerging Public Leaders, will be expanded due to new support from Duke Energy and its employees. Duke Energy has donated $100,000 to support the expansion, and the employees have pledged to match the company grant. The new partnership was featured in Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
