The Riordan Family Leadership in Environmental and Natural Resources Program is dedicated to fostering greater environmental leadership at Colorado State University, Fort Collins and around the world.
An initiative of the Warner College of Natural Resources, the Riordan Leadership Program is designed to provide environmental leadership opportunities and resources to benefit natural resource students, professionals, and the greater community.
The program was founded in 2012 with generous support from the Riordan Family, and is envisioned to create a lasting legacy of environmental leadership that enables future and current natural resource professionals to make an impact on environmental challenges facing their communities.
The Riordan Leadership Program will not be offered during the 2019-2020 school year. Please check back for more information in August 2020.
Warner College student clubs/organizations have the opportunity to submit a proposal requesting funds from the Riordan Family Leadership in Environment and Natural Resources Program to address a local environmental issue. Clubs/organizations can request up to $1,000 to complete their project.
Proposals from up to six (6) clubs/organizations will be accepted each year, and two (2) representatives from each club will participate in a leadership development cohort during the school year where they will gain the leadership skills necessary to achieve the goals of their organization’s project.
As noted above, the program will not be offered during the 2019-2020 school year.
