The Kenneth and Marianna Brown Dietrich Honors Institute

Thiel College, located in Greenville, Pennsylvania (90 minutes from both Pittsburgh and Cleveland), is an independent liberal arts, sciences and professional studies institution offering more than 60 majors, minors, and areas of study.

In honoring Bill’s parents (both Thiel College graduates), in 2013 Thiel College created an intensive honors program of academic challenge and co-curricular outreach designed to help students develop a breadth of knowledge, strength of character and thoughtfulness of action that will make them natural leaders in the world. Annual distributions from The Dietrich Foundation continue to support scholarships, initiatives, and program operations in the Dietrich Honors Institute.
