Executive in Residence

The Executives in Residence program allows undergraduate and graduate students to connect with a diverse group of executive mentors and leaders in both professional and casual settings on campus.

The Executives in Residence program further provides opportunities for students to build relationships with business leaders through one-on-one meetings and leverage business leaders’ experiences to support classroom learning. Examples of engagement include counseling sessions to advise students on their prospective career choices, guest lecture opportunities, and small group meetings with student organizations.
