Jim Donald Joins UW Bothell as Executive-in-residence

02/10/2009
Former Starbucks CEO Jim Donald has been named executive-in-residence for the business program at the University of Washington Bothell. In this capacity, Donald will provide valuable insight and mentoring to current undergraduate and graduate students and faculty. He will also support the program through lectureship on topics as broad as leadership and business strategy.

"The wealth of knowledge and real-world experience he brings from his work with Starbucks and supermarket chains Pathmark, Safeway, Walmart and Albertsons will greatly benefit our students and provide them with a unique perspective on business and how they can directly apply their classroom experience to career development and growth," said Steve Holland, director of the business program at UW Bothell.

The university serves students in King and Snohomish counties and north Puget Sound seeking bachelor's and master's degrees. UW Bothell offers degree programs in applied computing, business, nursing, education, computing and software systems, interdisciplinary arts and sciences, cultural studies and policy studies.
