Through the generosity of the Robert O. Reich Family, CAFNR is proud to present the Professor-for-a-Day program, which brings industry professionals (many alumni of CAFNR) to campus to interact with students, faculty and staff.

Professor-for-a-DayThe program strives to:

  • Create a collaborative learning experience for students in an informal environment
  • Allow students to interact with CAFNR alumni and take away valuable lessons
  • Encourage the executive to share views on business, leadership and his/her tips for being successful in the real world


If you know of a dynamic individual who would be willing to come to campus to speak with students for a day, please fill out this form or contact the CAFNR Office of Advancement.

For CAFNR faculty/staff use:

Executive-in-Residence/Professor-for-a-Day staff will provide your CAFNR department with sample correspondence and a sample itinerary with tips on how to organize the visit.

The Executive-in-Residence program will cover up to $1,000 in expenses of the Professor-for-a-Day (expenses can include dinners, meetings, receptions, etc.)
