The McCarthy Residency showcases the work and skills of someone who has a distinguished career in public service, policy, or politics through a week long on-campus residency. Through visits to classes, cafeterias, practices, and public programs, the McCarthy resident engages a wide spectrum of the CSB/SJU community in addition to the general public. The McCarthy residency culminates in a dinner honoring the resident and a final keynote program open to the campus community and the public. The primary purpose of the residency is to give students extended access to someone with real knowledge and wisdom about policy, civic engagement, and public life. Past residents include:
- Al Eisele ‘58, Editor of The Hill
- Dave Durenberger ‘55, former U.S. Senator
- Sean Kershaw, CEO of the Citizens League
- Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.
