IRVINE, CA — The Alliant Insurance Foundation, in partnership with Southern University, the Louisiana Department of Insurance, and the Spencer Educational Foundation, has launched its first initiative, funding a risk management and insurance degree program at Southern University.
Working in conjunction with the Spencer Educational Foundation and the Louisiana Department of Insurance, the Alliant Insurance Foundation is granting the Southern University System an initial investment of $1.4 million over a three-year period for the creation of an accredited School of Insurance degree program.
“The Alliant Insurance Foundation is honored to partner with the Southern University System to broaden access to the insurance industry, develop a robust pipeline of underrepresented students interested in insurance, and collaborate in additional ways to move the needle on diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Lilian Vanvieldt, Alliant Insurance Foundation Board Chair.
In addition to the creation of the academic program, the Alliant Insurance Foundation has committed to investing in the careers of current and future Southern University students through a range of supporting initiatives. This includes outreach, internship opportunities, and support with job placement.
