Ralph Norcio, associate dean and professor of finance and accounting in Lynn’s College of Business and Management, was awarded the university’s first-ever endowed professorship thanks to a generous $1.5 million gift from the Homer and Martha Gudelsky Family Foundaton. This high honor is in recognition of Norcio’s consistently outstanding performance and ability.
“It was indeed a great honor for me to be awarded the Homer and Martha Gudelsky Endowed Professorship in Business,” says Norcio. “The award is especially gratifying since the recognition was the result of my passion for teaching and advising students at Lynn University.”
“The Homer and Martha Gudelsky Endowed Professorship in Business is not simply an individual honor for me but validation of the academic programs in general, and the business program in particular, at Lynn University,” he adds.
“The Guldesky family has been very successful in the private sector and their commitment to Lynn University is another winning investment in their portfolio.”
