The Professional Connections are specialized groups who provide a source of information and support for alumni and students. Current groups include the President’s Business Council (PBC) and the Medical Alumni Council (MAC). These groups organize special events, continuing education programs and networking opportunities.
President’s Business Council (PBC)The President’s Business Council (PBC) was formed by the University and a prominent group of alumni and friends with the purpose of advancing the mission of the University. The PBC fulfills the interests of the University and of these alumni and friends in the business community to form an organized, national affiliation that strengthens the Scranton network in the business sectors. Membership on the PBC is open to alumni and friends who can help in accomplishing its objectives.
Medical Alumni Council (MAC)The Medical Alumni Council seeks to assist undergraduate pre-health professional students through education in health-related programs, networking assistance and guidance on admission to health professional schools, and access to role models in various medical careers. The MAC also keeps alumni health practitioners informed about campus developments, nominates students and alumni for scholarships and awards, conducts symposia for alumni in the health professions, and encourages financial support for the University from these alumni. The Medical Alumni Council is dedicated to securing The University of Scranton's place as the recognized leader in pre-health professional education in Pennsylvania.
