John A. Hauser Executive-in-Residence Program

The Department of Management Executive-in-Residence Program was initiated and endowed in honor of John A. Hauser by his family. Mr. Hauser, a philanthropist and business leader in Adams County, not only served on the board of trustees for Gettysburg College, but also contributed generously to the college in the form of many gifts. The focus of the Hauser Executive-in-Residence Program is business ethics and business morality in recognition of John Hauser’s strong passion for these aspects of business. During the academic year 2017-2018, the Department of Management invited Dr. Tae Wan Kim, Assistant Professor of Business Ethics at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University to campus to give a lecture, “Ethics is the New Black.” In 2018-2019 the Department of Management hosted “A Panel Discussion on Business Ethics: Perspectives from Local Business Owners” with local business owners Monica Oss, Ruger Lund, and Timbrel Wallace. Then in 2019-2020, the Department of Management presented Dr. Edward Freeman, Elis and Signe Olsson professor, University of Virginia Darden School of Business who gave a lecture titled “Responsible Business: Capitalism in the 21st Century”.

In addition to the Hauser Executive-in-Residence program, an award was established by the family of Mr. Hauser in his memory: the John A. Hauser Meritorious Prize in Business. Every year in the fall, the Department of Management faculty choose a senior to receive this award based on excellence in academic studies and campus leadership, while demonstrating good character and concern for high moral standards. This year on Fall Honor’s Day, the award will go to Victoria (Tori) Wierzbowicz, a senior in the Management Department.
