Kris Donnelly

Corporate Internship Program Director

The mission of the Dougherty Family College is written on my heart. It's the passion I pursue each day. It's the story I tell wherever I go - I've even been known to start up conversations in the grocery aisles about our amazing scholars. The creation of this college at the University of St. Thomas is an opportunity to drastically expand the possibilities for those who have traditionally been underserved and create a lasting impact for these students, their families and our community. I truly feel blessed to be part of its development.

In my role, I guide our students as they develop the professional skills and behaviors that will help them become extraordinary leaders. I help them understand the incredible value and skills their unique life experience brings to our community. I also have the honor of introducing them to our business and nonprofit community for internships where our scholars and their employers can learn from one another.

While I was a student, St. Thomas encouraged me to continually strive for excellence and inspired me to work for a just world for all people. I'm thrilled to be back on campus helping to inspire and encourage the next generation of students.
