Warner College of Natural Resources' new leadership program

March 28, 2012

Through a generous gift from alumnus Laurence Riordan, the Warner College of Natural Resources announces the launch of the Riordan Family Leadership in Natural Resources Program.

Dr. An Kyoung-Jin “The Warner College of Natural Resources has been a leader in natural resource and environmental education, research, and outreach for more than 100 years, and this wonderful gift allows us to continue to educate current and future natural resources leaders, and to provide the science and practices to address today’s local and global challenges,” said Dean Joyce Berry. 

Inaugural seminar March 29

An Kyoung-Jin, assistant professor at the University of Tokyo and director of the Asian Program in Environmental Leadership, will deliver the Riordan Leadership Program inaugural seminar, “APIEL’s Environmental Leadership Experience in Asia” at 12:30 p.m. March 29 in Forestry Building Room 217. The seminar is open to all CSU students, faculty and staff. 

Laurence Riordan

Riordan enrolled in what was the newly established Range Management program at CSU in 1937 and received his bachelor’s degree from Colorado State in 1941. In 1951, after serving in World War II and working with the Colorado Game and Fish Department, he completed a master’s degree in Range Management. Riordan retired after a successful 35-year career with the Colorado Division of Wildlife and he often said that his education at CSU was largely responsible for his successes.
