Executive-in-Residence Program

Since its inception in 2003, the Executive-in-Residence program’s objective has been to offer UWRF students and the St. Croix Valley community the opportunity to meet and interact with influential business leaders. As guest lecturers, the Executives-in-Residence share their experience and business insights with students in the classroom.

“Our students benefit greatly from the knowledge these executives bring to a classroom discussion and public lecture,” says Glenn Potts, former Dean of the College of Business and Economics. “For the Executive-in-Residence, it is an opportunity to meet the upcoming generation of business leaders.”

The College of Business and Economics and First National Bank of River Falls co-sponsor the program.
