John’s University’s Vincentian Center for Church and Society along
with the Peter J. Tobin College of Business presents the second of
three workshops offered this semester to help Catholic school
principals strengthen their managerial and marketing skills on
April 30, 2013.
by The School of Education’s Institute for Catholic Schools, the
program was launched in 2010 for principals who want to update
their skills as well as those who are new to their posts. The most
recent workshop considered topics such as accountability, Catholic
identity, human resources, legal issues, marketing, strategic
planning, mission and values.
Catholic school closings have persuaded many principals to
strengthen their skills at marketing and development, said Margaret
John Kelly, D.C., Ph.D., Executive Director of the Vincentian
Center. “We want to assist them in getting up-to-speed as quickly
as possible,” said Sr. Margaret John.
St. John’s faculty members have volunteered their time to make the
workshops a success. This semester, instructors include Joan Ball,
Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Marketing; Larry Boone, Ph.D.,
Assistant Professor of Marketing; Cynthia R. Phillips, Ed.D.,
Assistant Professor of Accounting and Taxation; and Mary Ann
Dantuono, J.D., Associate Director of the Vincentian Center. Rino
Grzinic’77SVC, Assistant Director of Development, leads sessions on
fundraising and development.
