Through Community Impact gatherings on each of the three campuses, it’s hoped that by highlighting programs Riverland offers it will share a glimpse into what the student experience at Riverland is like. Although this event is free to attend, guests will be asked to make a gift to support Riverland students.

 “The community impact event is a fun opportunity for community members to come together to celebrate Riverland’s impact in the community, learn about exciting upcoming initiatives, and consider ways you can get involved in supporting Riverland students and the college,” said Janelle Koepke, Dean of Institutional Advancement. “Plus, if you haven’t met Kat Linaker, Riverland’s new president, this is a great way to meet and learn more about her leadership experience in higher education.”

 Riverland’s Austin Campus is located at 1900 8th Avenue Northwest. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP at www.riverland.edu/impact  by Nov. 10 to assist us with planning. Late registrations will be accepted.
