A Message from the President of the Alumni Society
What comes from a Scranton Experience? As a graduate of The University of Scranton, you belong to a society with more than 46,000 members spanning 65 countries — a network with a shared experience whose possibilities are endless.
Our Alumni Society is a local, national and increasingly global connective tissue — a powerful resource for careers, faith, friendships and philanthropy. As we begin a new year, our Society’s Board Leadership has made a commitment to focus on three priorities, all of which are grounded in University’s mission and ministry:
1. Student recruitment efforts that result in more young people having a “Scranton experience”
2. Career development through internships, mentoring, networking and job placements for alumniof all ages as well as current students
3. Philanthropy that ensures the work of the University can continue to shape individuals as men and women for others committed to God, academic excellence and service to our communities
Chances are you may have met at least one of the volunteers leading our efforts. Each one hails from a different state, decade and industry. They bring a wealth of expertise ranging from health care, law and government to finance, insurance and nonprofits. Their bright, thoughtful perspectives shine like a miniature United Nations, but their passion unites them and me in service to the University and to you. I encourage you to get to know our 2014-15 Executive Committee and Alumni Society Board Members:

We will continue to share updates online at scranton.edu/royalnews and here in The Scranton Journal, but we also want to hear from you! Wherever you are in life, make 2014 the year you do at least one new thing: make a connection for a young graduate, make time for a student by phone, attend an alumni event, or make a donation of any size. To become more involved with your alma mater, please feel free to contact any of us. All contributions of time and treasure are welcome.
