About the CTE Executive in Residence Program: The Career and Technical Education Residency Program was developed to inspire, motivate, and showcase career successes of graduates of UW-Stout. A variety of distinguished leaders in Career and Technical Education volunteer their time and expertise for one or several days on the UW-Stout campus in order to facilitate student and faculty development via small group seminars, round table discussions, and presentations open to the campus. Residents are selected based on their demonstrated leadership, exemplary moral code, novel problem solving techniques, a proven record of exemplary team building and/or strategic planning, and demonstrated passion for serving as a role model.
