About the Salerno Center
Victor E. Salerno ’66, CEO of O’Connell Electric and Chair of the College’s Board of Trustees, gave the College a $2 million gift—the largest gift ever from an alumnus—for the construction of the Center in December of 2011.
“For me, the Salerno Center has definitely enhanced the classroom experience. The set-up of each room creates an open environment allowing better communication and improving personal relationships between fellow classmates and professors. And the building is equipped with technology that allows students to keep up with the latest and greatest in the business world.”
