Reggie is an alum of Cornell from 1983 with a Bachelor of Science. He has even updated his LinkedIn with the new position. He’ll be involved a program that’s less conventional than the traditional curriculum offered at the university however.
Fils-Aime will be involved in some individual mentorships, small group discussions, and one larger workshop, which appears to have a lecture event on October 21, open to the public.
The excerpt below is from the school’s website and describes the program.
Each academic year, the Dyson Leadership Program invites premier leaders to the Cornell campus with its Leaders in Residence program. Students, primarily undergraduates, learn about leadership though ongoing, personal interaction with successful leaders who represent a variety of industries and sectors.
Leaders in Residence will come to campus once each semester to meet one-on-one with students, lead small group discussions, and facilitate a larger workshop—all centered around leadership, conscious capitalism, and service.
This seems like a fantastic opportunity to learn about Reggie’s leadership experience in the fascinating video game industry. What do you think about Reggie coming back to Cornell? Let us know below.
