NJBIZ Education Power 50 List Honors President Nyre and Professor Lewis for Leadership and Innovation at Seton Hall  

President NyrePresident Joseph E. Nyre, Ph.D., was named to the NJBIZ Education Power 50 List 2021 by NJBIZ, one of New Jersey’s leading business publications.

Through his student-centered leadership, Nyre has successfully guided Seton Hall while advancing a vision to elevate it among the nation’s foremost Catholic universities. Emphasizing consummate planning – informed by a firm commitment to shared governance – he brings to life Seton Hall’s focus on "what great minds can do."

In making the announcement, NJBIZ staff wrote, "Much of Nyre's tenure as Seton Hall University's 21st president has been spent in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nyre earned credit as an innovator early on by making Seton Hall the first on the eastern seaboard to announce its fall 2020 plans, when so much was still up in the air."

They continued, "Planning is one of Nyre's fortes: Since late 2020, he's finalized and initiated a multi-year master plan for Seton Hall and commenced a campus master planning process to physically transform the university over the next 15 years in a way that supports learning, student life, and research. Additionally, he's planned and implemented the silent and public phases of the university's first comprehensive fundraising campaign in over a decade, and funding has increased more than 100% year over year.”
