R2i2 opened in 2016 and is a state-of-the-art facility for juniors and seniors from Richland School District Two’s five high schools. The facility was designed to be a collaborative environment for educational and community use, and houses a public library and the district office. In addition to traditional courses, the school offers courses in several areas including entrepreneurial management; computer aided design and manufacturing; next energy and fuel cell engineering; marketing and social media, and others.
In this meeting, attendees will learn about the Institute’s Supply Chain and Global Logistics Management course, take a tour of the facility, and network with other members of the South Carolina logistics community.
R2i2 is looking for industry partners just like you to help grow the Supply Chain and Global Logistics Management course and develop your future workforce. They need industry expertise to help write curriculum and serve as guest speakers for the students, and also want to learn about your organizations’ needs. We hope you will join us to learn more about this program and how you can partner with the school!
