#1 Ranking in the LEAD Awards!

“Stillman’s Gerald P. Buccino ’63 Center for Leadership Development earned, for the FOURTH year in a row, a #1 ranking in the LEAD (Leadership Excellence and Development) Awards sponsored by HR.com!  Specifically, our Buccino Center was named the #1 Certificate Program with Emphasis on Leadership/Organizational Development. LEAD Education Awards recognize colleges/universities that provide great leadership/HR development programs at all levels, and recipients are selected based on a comprehensive application reviewed by HR.com’s expert leadership panel.

We are indebted to Director Michael Reuter for his inspirational leadership and commitment to excellence.  We also are so grateful to our Leadership Advisory Council, especially Professor Jack Shannon, and to all our Leadership students and alumni who contribute to raising the standard of excellence each year.  Of course, all of the wonderful initiatives of the Center would not be possible without the generous and steadfast support of the program’s benefactor, Dr. Jerry Buccino.

Sustaining excellence at this level is not easy!  In fact, we’re beyond words to describe the successive victories. We had the repeat and the three-peat, but there’s no word or phrase – of which I’m aware – to describe a fourth consecutive victory!”

Dean Strawser

“Again, congratulations on this extraordinary accomplishment of being #1 nationally ranked for the fourth year in a row. That’s history-making! As we remember always…the best is yet to come!”

Mike Reuter
