The main purpose of this program is to allow a senior executive from a major business enterprise to spend a meaningful period of time on campus interacting with students and faculty. The Executive-in-Residence shares his/her own perspective on leadership - drawn from his/her experience in the business world. In turn, students and faculty have an opportunity to gain their own insights through their interaction with the Executive-in-Residence. This reciprocal relationship is the hallmark of this program.

While the McDonough Center hosts many campus speakers throughout the academic year, the Executive-in-Residence is expected to go beyond a one-time campus presentation. However, the residence arrangement is flexible. It can range from several visits during a semester to a longer stay on campus (e.g., a full week, two weeks, a month). While on campus, the Executive-in-Residence can make presentations to different groups (e.g., classes, campus, community organizations), or even team-teach a class with the Center's dean. The Executive-in-Residence will also have an opportunity to mentor a leadership student intern interested in his/her main business area. The program's flexibility allows the Executive-in-Residence to make a commitment based on his/her time requirements. All of the details will be arranged prior to the residence.

The McDonough Center provides the Executive-in-Residence with his/her own spacious office and clerical support. The office is fully equipped - including computer, printer, scanner, fax machine, copier, telephone, and Internet access -- and close to a Conference Room available to the Executive-in-Residence. The Center also has an Executive Suite in its building which can be used by the Executive-in-Residence. He/she also will have full access to the College's brand new Dyson-Baudo Recreation Center - located next to the McDonough building. In case of longer stays, arrangements will be made for meals on campus. Faculty also may invite the executive to their homes for meals as part of the program activities. The campus is also located in the downtown area with easy access to many different restaurants.
