Lani Carroll Hinkle ’83 at the annual PIFP Welcome Dinner in Bemis Hall in May

Lani Carroll Hinkle ’83, director of the Public Interest Fellowship Program, is retiring at the end of October after being with the program for 12 years. The Public Interest Fellowship Program, founded by Professor Emeritus of Sociology Jeff Livesay in 2004, places Colorado College students and recent graduates in paid positions with Colorado nonprofits in summer or yearlong fellowships. Hinkle reports that 382 CC students have held fellowships through the program. She says she has loved being the director of PIFP and is grateful for all the wonderful fellows, nonprofit organizations, and alumni she has had the opportunity to work with. She also is excited to explore the next step in her career after leaving CC.
