The Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development Ranked #1 in Educational Institutions at Leadership 500 Excellence Awards

The mission of the Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development depicts the program’s dedication to great excellence and extraordinary results:

“Develop extraordinary leaders who will be recognized for the values and principles by which they live, their vision and purpose in life, the outstanding results that they achieve, their service to the community in which they live and their love, dedication and caring for those they serve.”

With this vision, the program rises to new heights each year not only with guidance of an inspirational and caring leader, but also through the exceptional students and supporters who embody the diligence and professionalism the Program enhances in everything they do. Last night, the Program’s efforts were recognized nationally. The Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development was ranked #1 among Educational Institutions for the 2015 Leadership 500 Excellence Awards! Hundreds of programs, including Ivy League institutions, nationwide apply to win this prestigious award every year. Through a nomination and voting process, alumni feedback regarding the impact of program content and evaluation of social media engagement are large proponents in deciding the top programs since this helps the committee form objective views of all the candidates. Each program competing for top rankings is responsible for sending out its customer survey link to its extensive, supportive network.

The definite ranking of the Educational institution (University Business School/Technical Trade School) category is listed below:

1st place – The Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development, Seton Hall University
2nd place – Florida International University Center for Leadership
