Donald L. Wilson Program in Enterprise and Leadership
The Wilson Program funds and promotes a range of activities in support of our mission to enhance student understanding and experience in areas of innovation and leadership. We support interdisciplinary, discovery-mode liberal arts courses, fund mentored student internships in organizations throughout the world, send students to conferences and workshops around the country both to train and present their own work, and invite college alumni to return to campus to offer insights and salient experiences derived from creative careers and responsible leadership.
The Donald L. Wilson Program in Enterprise and Leadership was endowed by alumnus Donald L. Wilson '25 and his wife. This distinguished program serves to provide students with opportunities to understand and practice leadership and innovation. It is co-directed by a faculty member and the Daniel and Patricia Jipp Finkelman Dean of Careers, Life and Service, and served by a committee of faculty, staff, and students, as well as a leadership council of distinguished alumni.
Myron Rolle will present a free, public talk at 7 p.m. Saturday, October 3, in the Alumni Recitation Hall Auditorium (Room 302).
Rolle is a neurosurgeon, football all-american, Rhodes scholar, NFL draftee, and humanitarian.
