The Henry and Maryann Roman Diplomacy and International Relations Leadership Center



The H&M Roman Diplomacy and International Relations Leadership Center at the School of Diplomacy and International Relations is an arm of the award-winning Buccino Leadership Institute. The Center recruits undergraduate Diplomacy and International Relations majors with strong leadership capability, academic merit, drive, and passion to hone their leadership skills through a rigorous extracurricular leadership development program.

About the Program

What distinguishes the Buccino Leadership Institute approach from other leadership programs is that we provide both an individual school or college-based program as well as an integrated university cohort program, so that students learn more intensively how leadership development is applied in their area of study, while also learning from the perspectives of professionals and students in a diverse array of fields.

In the freshman and sophomore years, scholars in the H&M Roman Leadership center attend a weekly interdisciplinary leadership development course taught by Institute Executive Director, Dr. Bryan Price, where they learn to lead themselves and others. In the junior and senior years, scholars complete a Diplomacy specific leadership development curriculum developed by the associate director that engages students in practical application within the discipline of the skills learned in the freshman and sophomore years.
