Daniel J. Wukich, of Penn Township, Pa., is the founder of Quest Healthcare Development, Inc., which includes two long-term care nursing care facilities, Loyalhanna Care Center in Latrobe, Pa., and William Penn Care Center in Penn Township, Pa., and Quest Realty Partnership, which has acquired over 150 acres in western Pennsylvania and developed a professional office building in Penn Township, Pa. Wukich obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh. Wukich is a member of the Seton Hill University Board of Trustees where he serves on the University Relations and Development Committee and Student Interests Committee. Since 2001 Wukich has served as board chairman of the Westmoreland County Housing Authority Board of Directors. Wukich has a family legacy at Seton Hill University; his daughter, Lynne Wukich Lippincott, of Berlin, N.J., graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science degree in merchandising.
In 2009, Wukich made a $2 million leadership commitment to Seton Hill to enhance the University’s Signature Degree Programs in Business and the Health Sciences. As a result of this gift, Seton Hill has renamed its business programs the Wukich Business Programs, and is working with Wukich on the creation of The Wukich Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities at Seton Hill University. The Wukich Center for Entrepreneurial Opportunities (Wukich CEO) will equip students with the entrepreneurial skills needed to address the challenges of an evolving global market – whether a student’s career path includes running their own business or serving as a leader within an existing one. The Wukich Center will support students by creating the Wukich Scholars and Wukich Interns Programs; initiating The Wukich Micro Loan Fund for Student Entrepreneurs and a business incubator; and supporting the efforts of E-Magnify, Seton Hill’s Women’s Business Center, and CareerWorks, the University’s career and internship service for students. The Center will also support research and curriculum development for Seton Hill faculty.
Lloyd Gibson, D.Sc., director of the Seton Hill MBA program said, “We are delighted to have Dan Wukich with us for what promises to be an informative evening. Dan is an amazing entrepreneur with tremendous business acumen. He will provide our students and guests with a greater awareness of the benefits of entrepreneurial thinking; such thinking embraces adaptation and collaboration in order to respond to change.”
Christine Mueseler, vice president for Institutional Advancement and Marketing added, “Dan Wukich is an exemplary business owner as well as a generous philanthropic leader who provides our students with a model to be emulated. His leadership gifts and pledge to Seton Hill will have a long-term impact on the University’s business and health science programs. The entire Seton Hill community is looking forward to Dan’s presentation.”
