St. Olaf College kicked off the new year with new On the Road events in Minneapolis and Seattle.

In Minneapolis, three highly accomplished alumni — former Mayo Clinic Health System CEO Rob Nesse ’73, LifeSource CEO Susan Gunderson ’79, and Zipnosis CEO Jon Pearce ’01 — provided insight into the issues facing America’s health care system during a panel discussion moderated by St. Olaf Associate Professor of Biology and Health Professions Committee Chair Kevin Crisp. (Listen to the full discussion here.)

In Seattle, St. Olaf President David R. Anderson ’74 sat down with David Rossow ’05 — a senior officer for program-related investments at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — for a conversation about strategic philanthropy.

More than 400 people attended the two January St. Olaf On the Road events, which followed the inaugural event in New York City this fall that featured a conversation with economist Dean Maki ’87.

The On the Road program — which brings alumni, parents, and friends of the college together with prospective students for conversation and networking — will hold its final event of the year in Denver on March 19.

Watch the full Seattle On the Road conversation below.
