The primary purpose of the Executives in Residence Program is to enhance the intellectual, spiritual and social development of Charleston Southern students. Executives in Residence bring insight and real world experiences to undergraduate and graduate students. Executives are ambassadors for CSU who provide assistance to the university in networking, internships, marketing, resource development and student employment. All executives embrace CSU's core values and promote CSU's vision of integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
Each Executive is paired with a professor in the College of Business to co-teach. Faculty members are responsible for mutually securing agreed upon dates for classroom lectures. Executives are encouraged to participate in College of Business assembly programs, business chapels and Christian Leadership events. All Executives in Residence meet two times per year with the Dean of the College of Business, Vice President for Academic Affairs, President and other key people to reflect on student learning experiences and provide suggestions for improvement.
