Faith Rivers James

Executive Director

Faith grew up in the Four Mile community East of the Cooper River and is a graduate of the Porter-Gaud School. She graduated from Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School, then launched a legal career in Washington, D.C.

She later served as Executive Director of the South Carolina Bar Foundation, where she was fortunate to be able to work in partnership with the Coastal Community Foundation and the Conservation League to launch the Heirs’ Property Preservation Project, an issue that remains near and dear to her heart.

Later, her law teaching career led her to focus on property and environmental issues at Vermont Law School and Elon University School of Law.

She returned home to the Lowcountry five years ago to serve as the Assistant Provost for Leadership and Chair of the Department of Leadership Studies at The Citadel, where she taught the next generation of our state’s leaders.
