Learning to Lead
The Buccino Leadership Institute is an award-winning comprehensive four-year leadership development certificate program for competitively selected students from across the University.
The program is designed to help students see themselves as leaders, find their voices and build their confidence. The program fosters leadership skills across every field of study — arts, sciences, business, education — and encourages students to lead in service of the greater good. The Institute is interdisciplinary in nature, breaking down the barriers from one discipline to the next, so students can reflect on key leadership competencies or “pillars” that they will cultivate no matter their major or future path.
Established in 2018, the Institute was named to honor Gerald P. Buccino ’63, Seton Hall Regent Emeritus and a nationally recognized pioneer of "turnaround management.” The program integrates with students’ studies, teaching them how to lead with personalized instruction, coaching, ongoing mentoring and the latest in leadership development science.
