Gatton’s Executive in Residence (EIR) program will consist of 4 – 8 participants annually. The group will represent different industries in business, have different areas of expertise and be diverse amongst the others selected each semester in terms of age, gender, race, etc. The core focus of EIR is to engage high-level business professionals (most commonly alumni of the college) in an opportunity that connects them to our college in a more meaningful way over a 2 – 3 day period of time.
