Welcome to the Charles Koch Institute’s Educational Programs Rise Summit.

This is an opportunity for the Koch Internship Program (KIP) and the Koch Associate Program (KAP) to explore the wide-ranging work of our Community, interact with other participants and leaders, and staff.

Why Rise? We believe that each one of you has the potential to transform yourself and society.  We intentionally overlapped the Spring KIP Opening Summit and the KAP Mid-Year Summit to bring the best speakers and networking opportunities. Through this summit we hope to give you the tools and knowledge to rise.

 - Pia Clarke, Koch Internship Program Lead & Lea Dulani, Koch Associate Program Lead
