An Interview with Gayle Riggs

New Books Network 2021

This episode is a companion to the interview with David Galas on the founding of the Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, the newest of the Claremont Colleges. Gayle Riggs describes the family background and unusual career path that prepared her husband Hank to successfully lead Harvey Mudd College and then found KGI. This included two very different roles at Stanford: first as a faculty member who founded the Engineering Management program whose graduates have led many Silicon Valley firms, and then as head of Development, where he led Stanford’s first billion dollar campaign.
