Executives-in-Residence

The JSGS Executive-in-Residence program integrates former senior public servants into the academic, research and executive education components of the school. Current executives-in-residence include experts in areas ranging from board governance, to executive leadership, to public administration, to Indigenous governance and reconciliation, to innovation policy and social policy.

As part of their role within the school, executives-in-residence co-teach some of the graduate and executive education classes and are available to students for mentoring.
